Dubrovnik

The Synagogue and Jewish Museum

  Žudioska 5      (+385-20) 32 12 04     19 Mar 2018

The Synagogue (1352, the second oldest in Europe after Prague) and Jewish museum are set in a building which could be reached from within the surrounding houses in what was once the Jewish ghetto. A permanent Jewish community here was founded at the end of the 15th century following the exodus from Portugal and Spain. The community flourished and included respected doctors, merchants and state representatives. Jews in Dubrovnik enjoyed relative freedom, but there were some restrictions on their activities at certain points in history. The Synagogue is tiny and delightful, with heavy velvet drapes and a richly painted, midnight blue ceiling. The museum contains valuable menorahs and Torah scrolls, alongside information on the history of the Jewish community in Dubrovnik.

My wife and I will be in Dubravnik next week and plan to visit the Synagogue and museum. Of the exhibits within the museum, is a haggadah one? I would love to see one from the time of the Jewish migration during the early 16th century.
