Jew's Court with SchPIRA Museum and mikvah

back to overview

The Bima – Hebrew for lectern – is no more. The thriving Jewish community of mediaeval Speyer is also well and truly a thing of the past. But what remains is one of the oldest and most spectacular testimonials of Jewish life in Germany: the ruins of the synagogue with its unusually large annexed synagogue for women and meticulously maintained Mikvah, Jewish baths dug deep into the earth, which served as a place for men and women to undertake ritual cleansing for special, strictly defined occasions.
