After a five year break for restoration and revamping, the Museum of the History and Culture of Jews in Romania is reopening, also with the dedication of new art gallery.
The museum was founded in 1978, at the initiative of then Romanian Chief Rabbi Moses Rosen in the former Holy Union synagogue, built in 1836 as a place of worship for the local tailors’ craft union.
More than 15 historic synagogues all over England can be visited at various times during England’s 15th annual Heritage Open Days.
They include synagogues in Reading, Bristol, Exeter, Hull, Cheltenham, Bournemouth, Brighton, Manchester — and more. There will also be tours of four Jewish cemeteries in Brighton, London, Liberpool, and King’s Lynn.
A chance to see inside the synagogue built by Sir Moses Montefiore in 1833. The nearby Mausoleum contains the tombs of Sir Moses and Lady Judith Montefiore. The Synagogue was designed by David Mocatta and was the first synagogue to be built in England by a Jewish architect.
Access is limited due to the historic nature of the buildings.
Access to buildings via woodland path.
Visit the Garnethill synagogue as part of the Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival, an annual event celebrating the city’s architecture, culture & heritage through a free programme of open buildings and events taking place over one week in September.
It is Scotland’s first purpose-built Synagogue. As well as continuing to be an active place of worship, the building is the home of the Scottish Jewish Archive Centre and Museum.
A specially curated programme of music spanning many genres. Numbers familiar from stage and screen will surprise you with their connections to Willesden. Event for adults.
