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.
From 16 June 2021, the Jewish Museum will be able to reopen at its usual hours, subject to conditions:
Tuesday - Sunday 10am - 12.30pm & 1.30pm - 5pm.
General distance and hygiene regulations apply in the museum, so currently only 15 people can visit at any one time.
We are also obliged to follow up on contacts.
The synagogue is still closed until probably the end of July due to ongoing construction work, we ask for your understanding.
