September 2 is the date anchoring this year’s European Days of Jewish Culture, a continent-wide event that opens Jewish heritage sites to visitors and programs a plethora of Jewish cultural events.
This year’s theme is “Storytelling.”
In some countries, there are several days (or weeks) of events; in other countries the “Day” takes place on a different date.
You can see individual country programs on the web site.
The synagogue will be open for visits, with a lecture on its history and architecture at 3 p.m.
Built in the first half of the 19th century, the synagogue of Brumath is located in a tree-lined courtyard.
This sanctuary is accessed by a western porch covered by a zinc roof supported by a row of Doric columns. In the center of the porch, a large door allowed access to men. It is flanked by two small doors. One was used by men for the exit, the other was reserved for women.
