In the late 1800s, a Jewish community formed in Cork City, which grew to its zenith in the 1930s – 40s. Now, the old synagogue is closed, and very few are left in Cork of the old community. Ruti Lachs, musician and member of the new Cork Jewish Community, will guide you on a one to two-hour walk, taking in the historic – and more recent - Jewish sites in Cork City, telling stories of the old community, and playing for you some of klezmer music and Yiddish song, the music of the Lithuanian Jews who made their home in Cork a hundred and thirty years ago. There will be plenty of time for questions during the walk. Depending on your personal requirements, the walk can be extended to include, for example, Cork music venues, good foodie places, and other sites of interest. Ruti has been researching the old community (the Cork Hebrew Congregation) through interviews with locals and with ex-Cork residents now scattered worldwide. Her research was collated into two documentary videos, Cork Jewish Culture Virtual Walk, which won a National Heritage Week award, and Memories of a Cork Jewish Childhood.
