Moscow Jewish Tour

In the time of the USSR Russia consisted of Russia itself and 16 republics. Now and then Moscow has been given greate opportunities for representatives of all these republics. The capital off Russia can be called Melting Pot too like New-York. Great number of Jews have been living in Moscow, a lot of them became famous in art, in science and other spheres but life of Jewish society wasn’t easy, the attitude of Russian governance was changeable though the centuries.

During your private tour the guide will tell you how and when the first Jewish community appeared in Moscow, their traditions and way of life. You will learn interesting facts which are not widely spread and are shocking for somebody. Did you know that Leo Tolstoy, the author of "War and Peace" and "Anna Karenina" had a rabbi as his private tutor? How difficult was life and final recognition of great artist Isaac Levitan?

During the tour your guide will show you Choral Synagogue, the oldest and the only functioning in Soviet time. This is the synagogue visited by the first Isralian ambassador Golda Meir.

This tour also includes a visit to community center and Tolerance museum. Tolerance museum is young but extraordinary one. It is very spacious and it is different in comparison with classical museums that you can touch everything. All the halls of regular exhibition are equipped with touch screens, multimedia technologies are used everywhere. Everything is moving and is living their own life, you can spend hours there, but your highly experienced guide will show you main things as you have to see the first Jewish theatre in Moscow.

According to your wish, we can include kosher shops and restaurants as we alwais offer 5 star service for our guests.
