Ireland for Jewish travelers
Ireland has a small but unique Jewish community with a rich past, a vibrant present and an exciting future. Ireland is renowned for the warm welcome given to visitors, expressed in the Irish expression, Céad Mile Fáilte - A hundred thousand welcomes! and in the Jewish community this is no different.
For cruise passengers, we provide a tour of Dublin which includes highlights of the city plus sites of Jewish Heritage:
- Jewish Museum.
- Former home of Rabbi Dr. Isaac Herzog, first Chief Rabbi of Ireland, and father of Dr. Chaim Herzog (Outside). Plaque on wall
- Holocaust Memorial at Terenure Synagogue Grounds
- If time permits, visit The Weingreen Museum of Biblical Antiquities in Trinity College Dublin. It received its present title in 1977 in recognition of Professor Weingreen’s contribution to the creation of the museum. Professor Weingreen was Erasmus Smith’s Professor of Hebrew at Trinity College Dublin between 1939 and 1979.
