Visit Choral Synagogue and Holocaust memorial synagogue among others with a private guide


Jewish Moscow tour gets you acquainted with the heritage of Jews residing in Russia and the capital before the Revolution, in Soviet epoch as well as modern Russia.

During this tour we will visit the oldest Choral Synagogue, constructed close to the former Jewish settlement, the one which continued to operate throughout the Soviet period despite all hardships of that time. You will also see Lubavichi ( HABAD)synagogue on Bolshaya Bronnaya street appeared in the house of prominent pre-revolutionary millionaire, industrialist and art patron, Lazar Polyakov. Closed in the Soviet era, it was revived and presented the new appearance after the reconstruction in 2003. The building includes Holocause and Sobibor museum, museum of Jewish life in Moscow, classrooms, a bookstore, a lecture hall, mikvah, kosher grocery store and kosher restaurant.

Finally, we will have a chance to visit the Holocaust Memorial Synagogue which became a significant part of WWII Memorial complex in Victory park.

Choral Synagogue
Sunagogue on Bolshaya Bronnaya street

BN: It takes 30 minutes walk to get to Memorial synagogue from the metro station and 30 minutes walk back. My recommendation is to take a taxi from metro station to Memorial synagogue.

For "Grand Circle Cruise Line" and "Vikings River Cruises" travelers- it takes 40 minutes walking+ metro to get from River Terminal to city center. I will pick you up from your river boat and we take metro .
