Our first cultural program for 2018 is crowned by a day trip to Görlitz, in Saxony. Not only can we find fragments of Jerusalem in contemporary Berlin; there are even elements of the Holy City in the town of Görlitz.

18 March 8.30 am – 9 pm

This is thanks to Georg Emrich, who, after returning from a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, commissioned a replica of the Holy Sepulcher in Görlitz in 1465. The entire complex is a reconstruction of the main portions of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem, a site commemorating the suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

We will be accompanied on the trip by our Program Director Léontine Meijer-van Mensch. Another special highlight of the program that afternoon will be tour of the Görlitz Synagogue. The synagogue, inaugurated in 1911, is among Germany’s most important national cultural monuments. Afterwards, we will join Léontine Meijer-van Mensch on a walking tour of Görlitz, her third adopted home, and taste the local specialty of poppy-seed cake.
