Schalom und Alaaf

In the organizer's words:

The Jewish community in Cologne is one of, if not the oldest Jewish community north of the Alps. Jewish life in Cologne was first mentioned in writing in 321, but Jews were already living on the Rhine much earlier. A lot has happened in the city on the Rhine over the last two millennia. As a child, the son of the cantor at the Cologne synagogue, Jaques Offenbach, played music at Neumarkt and Simon Oppenheim played Princess Venetia in the Rose Monday procession in 1824 and in the following sessions. Jews lived in the heart of the city until the 15th century, as their quarter was the center of Cologne for centuries. Experience Cologne's Jewish history on an entertaining walk with Gerd Buurmann.
