Expert Led Jewish Heritage Tour in Prague
On this 3-hour tour we will trace the history of the Jewish community from its early medieval beginning to its struggles and triumphs in the twentieth century. Led by an expert in history or Jewish Studies, we will come away with an appreciation for the unique qualities of the Jewish community in Prague and its place within the European Jewish community. We will spend a significant amount of time exploring the synagogues that remain open to the public, including the Old New Synagogue, which is the oldest remaining Synagogue in Europe. The Jewish Cemetery, which dates from the fifteenth century, presents a unique opportunity to discuss burial customs and rituals, while the Jewish Town Hall gives space to explore the flourishing of the Jewish community in the 16th century.
