  • Walk the streets of 'Little Jerusalem' with a guide with roots in this lost community
  • Visit the oldest synagogue in Ireland
  • Meet the many characters that made the Irish-Jewish community so vibrant, whether it be Lord Mayor Robert Briscoe or President Chaim Herzog
  • Dig into a tasty Challah bread in Dublin's only Kosher bakery
  • Recieve several documentaries by email about the Jewish community in Ireland

Description

The tour starts at Dublin's former main synagogue at 37 Adelaide Road, the heart of Jewish Dublin 'Little Jerusalem'. Have a quick coffee in the Kosher bakery before you visit points of interest. Discover the home of Ettie Steinberg, the only Irish victim of the Holocaust, the old Jewish Tailor's Union, Oakfield Place, and the location of a vicious string of murders in 1923. Your tour will finish at the Irish-Jewish Museum, as you explore the oldest synagogue left intact in Ireland and a wealth of stories about Ireland's old community and hear about a new thriving one.
