The Jewish graveyard can be accessed by walking from the old Synagogue along the Jews walk. Dating from the late 17th century, the antique burial markers are inscribed in Hebrew, English, and Portuguese.
An old, one-story stone structure behind the modern administration building in Charlestown, Nevis, is possibly the oldest synagogue in the Caribbean. Some believe it is the mikva (ceremonial bath) and all that remains of the oldest Jewish synagogue in the Caribbean.
I was introduced to the Nevis Dojo for USA Goju and subsequently left Nevis with a desire for continuing the practice. Classes run 4 times a week Mon - Thursday alternating in Bath and Gingerland.
Run by Sensei Vincent Maynard who is a Nevisian who has lived in the US previously.
With a summit of about 3232ft, how could you resist climbing it?
I'm not a hiker and I managed to reach the peak without any problems (the descent was nearly soul breaking for me whilst others skipped happily down, but each to his own..) I was invited to climb the peak with a friend of mine and his hiking group. There are a few guides that offer climbs on a regular basis, particularly mentioning Lynelle of Sunrise Tours who can manage a twice daily excursion there and back.
I would advise going when it hasn't rained.. this can impede your journey substantially. The first part of the hike is extremely steep if you're starting from the Zetlands, then the experience transits from simple woodland forestry to rock climbing using ropes in a jungle-like environment.
Took us about 3 hours to reach the top, but the average time is about 2-2.5 hours. Once you reach the top you can sign a book situated there for all those who have made it, and enjoy the fantastic view of the island if the clouds dissipate and permit it.
This museum is a tribute to Lord Admiral Nelson, who often visited Nevis at the end ofthe 18th century. The formi-dable commander was one of the most powerful military men in the British colonies.
