On Friday, 2nd of August 2019 we do not run the 10:00 and 15:30 Jewish quarter free tour, since almost the whole Jewish quarter will be closed. The reason of the closure is the events and programs of the Maccabi games which will take place 29th July-7th August in Budapest.
The European Maccabi Games are held every four years and are always held two years after the Maccabiah Games are held in Israel. European delegations send their best Jewish sportsmen and women to compete. during these couple of days.
Budapest is going to be home to the 15th European Maccabi Games in 2019
The Jewish Cultural Feast which is the biggest Jewish festival in Europe takes place in Budapest every year. The festival will be organized during the European Maccabi Games in 2019 in order to provide several cultural and free time activities for the guests and athletes. These activities will help to get them involved in the vibrant Hungarian Jewish life.
They will also provide a unique Shabbat experience by celebrating Shabbat in the largest synagogue of Europe, the Dohány street synagogue located in the heart of the Jewish quarter and Budapest.
You can join our Jewish quarter free tour any other day at 10:00 and 15:30! See you soon! 🙂
