to the Jewish Museum Worms!
In the Middle Ages, the Jewish community in Worms enjoyed a high reputation throughout western Europe as “Little Jerusalem on the Rhine”. Still today, there are unique records and reminders of Jewish life to be seen and visited in Worms, among them the Jewish Museum in the Rashi House. Come inside and learn all about the long history of this building and about the wide range of exhibits on religious and everyday life in the Jewish community from the Middle Ages up into the 20th century.
The exhibition “SchUM on the Rhine - From the Middle Ages to Modernity” takes you on a journey through time to the heyday of the Jewish communities in the ShUM cities of Speyer, Worms and Mainz.
The Jewish Museum and the synagogue will remain closed from
December 24, 2023 up to and including January 1, 2024.
From January 2, we will be open for you again at the usual opening hours.
Since mid-September 2020, the Jewish Museum in the Rashi House has been awaiting you with a completely new museum experience.
The exhibition: "ShUM on the Rhine - From the Middle Ages to the Modern Age"
