The ShUM cities of Speyer, Worms, and Mainz (named collectively for the first letters of their Hebrew names Schpira, Warmaisa, and Mainz) were the hub of medieval Jewish life in Central Europe. The cemetery “Holy Sand”, the Old Jewish quarter of the “Sacred Community of Warmaisa” and its Romanesque style synagogue are included in our Worms tour as well as the Jewish courtyard and the mikveh, dating back to 1120 in Speyer. Nearby, remains of the ancient synagogue, are proof to the existence of Jewish life in 1104.
Deppending on the schedule of your cruise ship, we can tailor the tour inclduing two or three of the Shum cities.
