Last September 5, in the heart of the city of Luxembourg, the kick-off of this year’s European Days of Jewish Culture was held, with the central theme of Dialogue.
In the event, the AEPJ and the Administration of Public Buildings installed a plaque that recalls the exact location of the first synagogue of Luxembourg, which occupied the premises of the former refuge of the sisters of Differdange from 1823 to 1894. This plaque marks the second step out of 30 on the Jewish heritage itinerary through the UNESCO zone “Luxembourg, old districts and fortifications”. The route can be followed with an audio guide on izi.travel or with a specially trained guide.
The launch of the Luxembourg route also marks its official integration into the European Routes of Jewish Heritage.
The event was attended by the mayoress of the city, as well as different ministers, the Director of the European Institute of Cultural Routes, the Israeli Ambassador to Belgium and Luxembourg, as well as the Chief Rabbi of Luxembourg.
This event has been in the news and on television. The official magazine of the city of Luxembourg today refers to the event again.
