The story of Jewish Groningen

The permanent exhibition shares the story of almost five centuries of Jewish history in Groningen. Learn about the Jewish religion, the Torah and tradition or discover the meaning of ritual cleansing in the mikveh.

 

Stories about ordinary and extraordinary Jewish Groningen residents play an important role in our exhibition. Hear how Jewish Groningen residents talk about their own lives, about their family, the significance of the synagogue, but also about the Holocaust. About poverty in the 19th century, about caring for each other, but also about special people such as Aletta Jacobs and Jozef Israëls. We also present stories about Jewish Groningen industrialists such as 'the dry and wet Polak'. Did you know, for example, that orange juice was invented in Groningen by Calmer Polak? Get to know Jewish culture and history in Synagogue Groningen!
