European Day of Jewish Culture


The 10th European Day of Jewish Culture will be celebrated this coming weekend in Palma de Mallorca, as well as in other Spanish cities, plus in many European cities as well. The annual activity aims to remember, to promote and to preserve the cultural heritage that the Jewish faith has had in Europe throughout history. The Sephardic community in Palma de Mallorca was one of the largest Jewish communities in the Mediterranean region during the 14th and 15th century.

The theme chosen for this year is Jewish Festivals and Traditions.


Activities are scheduled for September 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 9th, 16th and 23rd, including a day of Open Doors at Palma’s synagogue (inaugurated in 1986), a guided tour through Palma’s Call (Jewish Quarters) in Catalan and English, as well as in Castellano and German, a concert (Klezmer), a Jewish film cycle, exhibitions and a market of Jewish books, music, food, trinkets and curio. A detailed schedule of activities can be consulted at the Jewish Heritage website. All activities can be enjoyed free of admission.
