The New Synagogue Berlin in Oranienburger Street was opened in 1866 and used to be one of the best-known places of Jewish worship in Germany. It was not only a newly erected and magnificent building, but also a place for new rituals: an organ, a mixed choir, a prayer book in German, and the first female Rabbi in the world (who was ordained in 1935).
Today, one of the remaining rooms is used as a synagogue, and once again its congregation is introducing innovations. We will visit the contemporary synagogue as well as the permanent exhibition and explore themes of tradition and modernity. And we will talk about themes such as hope, uncertainty, destruction, Jewish self-determination.
