Jewish Cultural Quarter Amsterdam

The Jewish Cultural Quarter of Amsterdam is an organization that since 2012 has managed important Jewish heritage sites in Amsterdam, such as the Portuguese Synagogue and the Jewish Museum.

In these locations, five synagogues were opened in the 17th century, by Jewish refugees from Eastern Europe and Portugal who found safety and protection in Amsterdam.

Only the Portuguese Synagogue remained in tact during WWII and still serves to host Jewish religious services.

“The Jewish Cultural Quarter of Amsterdam is doing a very important job displaying the beauty of Jewish religion and culture to its visitors. There is no better place for people to enhance their understanding and appreciation of Jewish religion and culture than in historic sites like those”,

says Naomi Koopmans.
