Guided school tour ‘Jewish Antwerp’

A tour designed for school children about Jewish traditions and Jewish customs.

Our guide takes the pupils on a voyage of discovery through the neighborhood near the central station. While they walk along the diamond district and the small streets of the Jewish quarter, the guide tells them more about the Antwerp Jews. They first learn about how the Jewish community in Antwerp came to be. Then they learn about the typical customs of the Jewish tradition, such as eating kosher, respecting the Sabbath, and hanging a mezuza on the door.
