Our daughter recently became Bat Mitzvah at Mikve Israel-Emanuel Synagogue ('Snoa'). It was a moving and unforgettable experience. Chazzan Avery Tracht worked closely with our daughter to teach her the Sephardic trope. He was patient and diligent, and with his help, my daughter delivered a truly masterful performance.
If the physical beauty and historical significance of the Snoa weren’t enough to truly humble (they were), the leadership and congregation more than completed the experience: they were gracious, supportive, hospitable and warm.
All in all, the Snoa gave our family a life-altering experience that we shall never forget. We would encourage anyone and everyone visiting Curacao to visit this historical and cultural treasure, particularly fellow Jews.
