Rothenburg o.d.T.

It is documented that Jews lived in Rothenburg ob der Tauber in the Middle Ages. The city had a large Talmud School and thus had the reputation of being a center of Jewish scholarship. There was a second Jewish community in the “Judengasse” in what is now the old part of town. This community was, however, displaced in 1520. The Rothenburg City Museum has an entire section dedicated to documents, religious artifacts, and tombstones exploring the Jewish heritage of the city. The Rothenburg Week of Jewish Culture from October 17 through 25, 2015 has at its motto “Le’Chajim - To Life!” During this week, enjoy theater productions, music, and movies, discover Jewish history, laugh, explore, and dance.
