Jewish history in Riga (ID 004)
You will get information about the Jewish history in Latvia from 17th century till now. The tour includes visits to the Old Choral Synagogue, the former ghetto territory and the old Jewish cemetery. It was a part of the Jewish ghetto during Nazi occupation. When the war ended and the Soviets took over it was turned into a park. Today the only evidence of its original purpose is a large stone with the Star of David. You will have the opportunity to visit Peitav Shul, the only working synagogue in Latvia. Built in 1905, it is the only surviving Jewish prayer house and the main meeting place for the 12,000-strong community. Its sacred scrolls and other treasures were hidden and escaped destruction. It was not burnt down during the Holocaust due to its close proximity to other houses in Old Riga.
