The Jewish Quarter

East of the center of Amsterdam is the Jewish quarter. Traditionally, many Jews have always lived in this part of Amsterdam. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, Amsterdam was one of the largest and most important Jewish cities in the world. The traces of this are still visible in the neighbourhood. Built in 1675, the Portuguese-Israeli Synagogue is still in use and can be visited outside of services. The complex houses the oldest functioning Jewish library in the world. In the Jewish quarter you will also find the Jewish museum. In this museum you will discover everything about Jewish culture and the Jewish faith in the Netherlands.
