On the occasion of the European Day of Jewish Culture 2022, members of the Auerbach Synagogue Society welcome you in the former Synagogue of Bensheim-Auerbach.
With their activities, the members of the Auerbach Synagogue Society would like to keep the memory of the Jewish congregations in Auerbach and the district alive.
On the outside of the synagogue building, there is an inscription on a memorial plate – a verse from Deuteronomy, 4,9:
"Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons’ sons."

Synagogentour | Exkursion nach Binswangen und Buttenwiesen

2004 gründete sich das „Netz­werk Historischer Synagogen­orte in Bayerisch ­Schwaben“ mit zunächst fünfzehn Orten, an denen sich einst Synago­gen oder jüdische Betsäle befanden. Meist wurden sie in der NS­Zeit zerstört oder nach dem Krieg abgebrochen, an­dere zweckentfremdet. Einige wurden renoviert und dienen heute als Dokumentations­ und Begegnungsstätten.

Auf der ersten Exkursion des Erinnerungsortes BADEHAUS möchten wir zwei dieser Orte besuchen: In Binswangen befindet sich die älteste im neomaurischen Stil errichtete Synagoge Deutschlands, die seit 1996 als Begegnungs­stätte genutzt wird.

In Buttenwiesen ist eine jüdische Gemeinde seit 1571 nachweisbar. Nach dem Neubau der Synagoge 1856/7, ihrer Schändung im Novem­ber 1938 und dem Umbau zur Volksschule in den 1950er Jahren nutzt heute die evange­lische Kirche das Gebäude für Gottesdienste. Erhalten sind der jüdische Friedhof und das ehemalige jüdische Ritualbad.

A Diáspora Judaica Portuguesa: cristãos-novos, criptojudeus, marranos, «gentes da nação» (séc. XV a XXI)

Opening and guided tour of the exhibition.
As part of the European Days of Jewish Culture, the Interpretation Center of the Jewish Community presents, during the month of September, the exhibition The Portuguese Jewish Diaspora, organized by Editorial Chandeigne and presented in Portugal by Associação Hagadá | Tikva – Jewish Museum Lisbon.
This exhibition tells, over 20 panels, the story of the Portuguese Jewish diaspora in the Sephardic context, still little known, from its origins – the forced conversion of Portuguese Jews in 1497 – to the contemporary reminiscences of Marrano memories and their places of memory, showing it as a Jewish history, but also Portuguese, European and worldwide.
Persecuted by the Inquisition from 1536 onwards, many New Christians left Portugal, looking for a place to practice Judaism more or less freely, having participated, between the 16th and 18th centuries, in the profound socioeconomic, religious and intellectual changes that brought the western world to modernity.
