in Holland. Most, however,
are painted a golden yellow
with red tiled roofs and
curlicued white trim.
The architecture is ex-
emplified by Mikve Israel-
Emanuel, the western
hemisphere's oldest
synagogue in continual use.
The synagogue on Hanchi
Snoa (the Alley of the
Synagogue) was built in 1730
by Sephardic Jews who had
escaped the Inquisition,
found refuge in Holland, then
emigrated when the Dutch
government encouraged
settlers.
The interior bears large col-
umns, highly polished
mahogany bimah and pews,
sterling silver candlesticks
and gleaming brass
chandeliers dating from 1703.
It's closed Sundays.
"This is the mother con-
gregation of the Americas,"
said Miriam Capriles, curator
of the museum located on the
premises. Exhibits include
large circumcision chairs,
18th-century Bibles and
ketubot. Ms. Capriles, a
descendant of an original
Jewish family, worries about
the lack of money needed to
keep the items from
deteriorating. Ironically, this
congregation sent donations
to help construct New York's
Congregation Shearith Israel
(the Spanish and Portuguese
Synagogue) and Newport's
'Iburo Synagogue.
Outside the city, the 17th-
century Landhuis Habaii is
the only remaining lan-
dhouse in a once-Jewish
quarter and may be visited to
see how plantation owners
lived. The Hato Caves provide
an interesting look at
underground limestone caves
with white, brown and orange
formations.
Our next stop was at
Limon, Costa Rica, where we
journeyed to the country's
capital, San Jose. Beyond the
port city, houses were neatly
painted and inhabitants
cleanly garbed.
The bustling city of San
Jose offers several important
sights: the 1897-National
Theater, a small, baroque
Spanish Renaissance gem
with gilded and marbled in-
terior walls. Its crystal
sconces resemble cocoa pods.
The flea market outside offers
Central American han-
dicrafts at reasonable prices.
The National Museum
showcases a fine pre-
Columbian section including
metates (carvings from a
large, single piece of volcanic
rock) and a large jade pendant
2,500 years old. The Gold
Museum and the Jade Muse-
urn offer other important pre-
Columbian artifacts. ❑
