Cordoba Synagogue

The Córdoba synagogue is a historic edifice in the Jewish Quarter of Córdoba, Spain, built in 1315. The synagogue's small size points to it having possibly been the private synagogue of a wealthy man. It is also possible that Córdoba's complex of buildings was a yeshivah, kollel, or study hall. Another possibility is that this was the synagogue of a trade guild, which converted a residence or one of the work rooms into the synagogue. The synagogue was decorated according to the best Mudejar tradition.   After the expulsion of the Jews in 1492, the synagogue was seized by the authorities and converted into a hospital for people suffering from rabies (hydrophobia), the Hospital Santo Quiteria. In 1588, the building was acquired by the shoemakers guild, who used it as a community center and small chapel, changing the patron saint of the building to Santos Crispin-Crispian, the patron saint of shoemakers. It was declared a National Monument in 1885.   Since then it has undergone several phases of the restoration including that of Felix Hernandez in 1929. In 1935, the Spanish authorities marked the eight-hundredth anniversary of Maimonides' birth by changing the name of the square in which the synagogue is located to Tiberias Square, honoring the great native-born philosopher, who is buried in Tiberias. At this celebration the first Jewish prayer service in 443 years to occur openly and with full knowledge of the authorities was held at the synagogue. Another restoration was begun in 1977 for the reopening of the building in 1985 to celebrate the 850th anniversary of Maimonides birth. It is the only synagogue in Córdoba to escape destruction during years of persecution. Although clearly no longer functioning as a house of worship, it is open to the public.

Jaen - Moorish Jaén, Christian Jaén... And yes, also Jewish Jaén. I need three hundred kilometers and just over three hours by car from Madrid to reach the heart of this old Andalusian city, visible from any point thanks to its flagship, the grand Cathedral envisioned by the renowned architect Andrés de Vandelvira. My appointment with Eva María, the official guide of Jaén, is set in Constitution Square, the nerve center of the city

The land where the great Maimonides lived. Land of sages and poets. Its flowery yards fill the narrow streets of the Jewish Quarter. A ladino chant arises among the sunbeams of May and spreads through the neighbourhood until it reaches the beautiful walls of the stunning medieval synagogue.
