The Heart of Ashkenaz – October 2010

An exciting trip to Speyer, Worms and Mainz in the Rhineland region of Germany. This group of small towns is the heart of Ashkenaz — the place where Jewish life as many of us know it began. It was here that R. Gershom prohibited polygamy, where Rashi studied Torah and where R. Amnon of Mainz composed the haunting words of the U’Netana Tokef prayer that we still sing on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Spend a weekend in these charming towns, and discover how our Jewish world came into being.

Next year New North London Synagogue will be dedicating its new synagogue building. As part of the celebration of this event, Rabbi Jonathan Wittenberg will go to the synagogue where his grandfather served as Rabbi in Frankfurt to symbolically take the flame from the Ner Tamid and bring back to the new building. This trip is coordinated with Rabbi Wittenberg’s walk, and we will join Rabbi Wittenberg for a day in Frankfurt to launch his journey.

Dates:
21-24 October, 2010.
