The Jews of Prague
Hosted By: Qesher
Jews arrived to the Czechlands before the 9th century, and eventually Prague became home to once the largest Jewish community in the world. Its former Jewish Quarter is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and the ancient Old New Synagogue, the oldest working shul. Did Hitler really build a “Museum of Extinct Race” in Prague – and how did the Golem oppose him? Why is the story of interwar Czechoslovakia a key to unlocking aspects of modern Jewish identity? Qesher will also cover the renaissance of a community that almost ceased to exist due to the Holocaust and Communism.
