heritage tour

Take a tour with me to see the most important Jewish sites in Lviv (Lvov, Lwów) and learn history of the community from the middle ages until now.
We will visit together:
- the Old Jewish Street,
- recently open small Jewish museum,
- squares when Tempel and the Great Suburb Synagogue once were,
- The Jakub Glanzer Synagogue (opened specially for us, closed to the public)
- pre-war murals in Yiddish,
- Beis Aharon synagogue (provided that its owner gives us permission to visit it; usually available),
- former Jewish Hospital and former Jewish cemetery,
- site of Yanivskyi concentration camp.

Taxi strongly advised for the second part of this tour (about 8 to 12 USD paid to the driver).

My tour is far more than looking at buildings. It's about real, living stories, trying to explain coexistence and conflicts between people living in Lviv.
