Why Madrid and Toledo
We don't really have to explain to you what Spain means as a world super power in the medieval times and especially in the realms of Jewish history. Madrid was the capital and Toledo, well Toledo still has a magical Jewish experience with its 2 oldest and so beautiful Jewish synagogues. If you really want to read more, you have it all in this Wikipedia page.
Guided tours by professionals are organised in a way so that we visit all main attractions in Madrid and Toledo. We will meander through the narrow streets of the Jewish quarter in Toledo to get an idea of what life used to be for the Jews who lived in the medieval times. We will visit the ancient synagogues and streets where famous Jewish sages and masters lived. We will also have a guided tour in Madrid and visit the main attractions in town.
A rich Shabbat program will include inspiring talks, festive meals and fun with friends.
