Group 8’s first full day in Europe was spent touring different areas of Prague! First off they went to the Jewish Quarter and saw many fascinating synagogues such as the Pinkas synagogue, which has the names of those who perished in the Holocaust from Prague all over the synagogue, the Old-new (Alteneu) shul and the Spanish Synagogue. They also got to hear the story about the golem at the Alteneu shul and saw where he lived. They had lunch in the Old Quarter followed by a walk to the old town with the castle and a tour of the cathedral. After dinner tonight, the group will participate in a “get to know your staff” program! Everyone is excited to get to know one another and for the summer ahead!
