Permanent exhibitions: The History of the Jews in Bohemia and Moravia, Part 2 This exhibition deals with the history of the Jews in the Bohemian lands from the reforms of Joseph II in the 1780s to the period after the Second World War. It highlights the gradual advancement toward greater equality and emancipation for Jews in Austria-Hungary, describes the foundation of the Czech-Jewish and Zionist movements, and profiles the most important Jewish entrepreneurs, scientists, writers, musicians and artists (including Franz Kafka, Sigmund Freud and Gustav Mahler). It also deals with the redevelopment of the Prague Jewish Town, Jewish sites of Bohemia and Moravia, and the history of the Jewish Museum in Prague. Special focus is on the Shoah of Jews from Bohemia and Moravia, and the Terezin ghetto. Synagogue Silver from Bohemia and Moravia Located on the upper floor, this permanent exhibition features a representative selection of more than 200 of the most valuable silver artefacts from the museum's collections. Most space is given over to Torah ornaments - shields, pointers, finials and crowns. Also on display are charity boxes, pitcher and basin sets for hand washing, Shabbat spice boxes, Kiddush cups, Hanukkah and Shabbat candles, and charity collection trays. The Spanish Synagogue is part of the Jewsh museum in Prague. The Spanish Synagogue is the most recent synagogue in the Prague Jewish Town. Built in 1868 for the local Reform congregation on the site of the 12th-century Altschul, which was the oldest synagogue in the Prague ghetto. It was called the Spanish Synagogue for its impressive Moorish interior design, influenced by the famous Alhambra. The building was designed by Josef Niklas and Jan Bělský, the remarkable interior (from 1882–83) by Antonín Baum and Bedřich Münzberger. František Škroup, the composer of the Czech national anthem, served as organist here in 1836-45.

This is an interesting tour and a beautiful synagogue. We did the entire Jewish quarter tour. However, we were quite disappointed that most of the synagogues are no longer operational. This is quite sad. Therefore, this is a must-see to encourage people to learn about...More

We visited the synagogue during the day to learn of its history and returned in the evening for a concert. So glad we did. The acoustics are near perfect. It is an intimate venue for a concert.

We had the pleasure of attending a stringed quartet perform in the Synagogue. The sight lines were great and the acoustics were wonderful. This is such a beautiful and well preserved Synagogue. An amazingly peaceful sanctuary. Well with a visit.

This was, by far, my favorite sighting in Prague. I recommend doing the audio tour so you can understand what you're seeing and the history. Amazing!!

The graveyard is particularly interesting. You do not need a guide to understand and appreciate the history.

Josefov
Josefov houses Prague’s Jewish community. This small
neighbourhood centered around Široká street is
completely surrounded by Staré Město (Old Town). As
the former Jewish Ghetto, today all that remains are a
few synagogues and the oldest surviving Jewish
cemetery in Europe. The narrow streets were once small
enough that a person could touch the houses on both
sides. You can still feel the dignity and history this
