Jews in Lublin - religious tradistions in every day

Jews in Lublin - religious tradistions in every day

The stories of customs and traditions, located in a historical space, that evoke the pre-war atmosphere of Jewish Lublin.

Everyday life of the members of the pre-war Jewish community of Lublin was largely determined by strictly defined rules of faith. The rhythm of a day, a week and a year as well as a life cycle were subject to rituals resulting from the orders of religion and tradition. During the walk around the former Jewish district, the guide will tell you, among others, how the Sabbath is celebrated, what a bar mitzvah is, what the wedding and funeral ceremonies look like and what are the most important holidays in the liturgical calendar. The stories of customs and traditions will be located in a historical space, thus evoking the pre-war atmosphere of Jewish Lublin.

The walk will start at the Castle where once was the center of Jewish life in Lublin. The route will lead through the streets and nooks in which the traces of heritage can still be found, and it will end in the synagogue located in the building of the former Academy of Sages of Lublin.

 

Practical information:

  • Entry fee to the synagogue in the building of the Academy of Sages of Lublin is charged according to the price list at the Ilan Hotel’s reception desk (about 10 PLN / person).

I’m an educator and a language teacher with a rich experience in education from my years of working in the field — in schools, youth clubs and as a youth coordinator at the Israeli Federation of Young Students and Workers. I’m a guide, working in the field of Jewish history and culture in the Lublin Region for many years. Interest in Polish and Polish-Jewish history leads me in an attempt to promote intercultural communication and learning in the Polish Jewish sphere. I have cooperated with the Taube Centre for the Renewal of Jewish Life in Poland and The “Grodzka Gate — NN Theatre” Centre in Lublin, and I’m currently working for the Lublin based tourism company Rootka.
