Jewish Heritage Tour

THE JEWISH HERITAGE TOUR


From a once thriving medieval community to one of the smallest communities in Europe today, Slovenia's Jewish community has survived cruel medieval expulsions and suffered the ravages of 20th century war, only to find itself eroding even more during subsequent years of socialist rule. In this tour we visit sites within Ljubljana's old Jewish Quarter and other locations related to Jewish life. We explore Slovenia's Jewish history, culture and heritage, and discuss today's community and the problems it faces.
