European Day of Jewish Culture

Many Spanish towns and cities were vibrant hubs of Jewish life, a long time ago, such as Toledo, Girona, Barcelona, Cáceres, Segovia, Córdoba, Jaén, León, Ávila, Elche, Palma de Mallorca and many more. These places have joined a European movement of celebrating the European Day of the Jewish Culture. Tomorrow, September 7th, the 9th European Day of Jewish Culture will be celebrated not only in Spain, but in other European countries as well (France, Italy, Britain, Slowenia, Czech Republic, Belgium, Hungary, Turkey and others).

In Palma de Mallorca, I feel much better informed than in Slowenia or wherever. Here, guided tours will be offered free of charge throughout the day through the Call, i. e. the Medieval Jewish quarters of Palma de Mallorca. The tours are offered in English, German, Spanish and Catalan, from 10h00 to 18h45. Telephone 971.720.720 for reservations and for times. The synagogue in Palma will have a Day of Open Doors as well, between 10h00 and 14h00. A complete plan of activities can be found on this website.

And don’t forget: the Jewish New Year is celebrated this year on September 29th and 30th.  

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: September 2nd, 2008. The time was 14:11:39.
