Jewish Cultural Quarter closed on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur  17 September 2012

Shanah Tovah - Happy 5773

On Monday 17 and Tuesday 18 September we celebrate Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah). It is a time to reflect, and to help try to make the world a better place. Ten days of soul-searching follow in which Jews repent the wrongs they have done over the past year. Introspection opens the door to change. On Wednesday 26 September is the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur).

The Jewish Cultural Quarter - the JHM, the JHM Children's Museum, the Portuguese Synagogue and the Hollandsche Schouwburg - is closed on 17, 18 and 26 September. During these Ten Days of Repentance the Portuguese Synagogue will be open for services.

In December 2012, the JHM presents an exhibition about the Jewish cuisine. Come by, experience and enjoy the stories, recipes and flavours.
