The first Day of Jewish Monuments is held in the Czech Republic on Sunday. Over 40 heritage sites around the country, including synagogues, Jewish cemeteries and other buildings, will be open to visitors for a reduced fee. Among them are ten synagogues and Jewish buildings recently reconstructed under the “Ten Stars project.” The event is organised by Jewish community in Prague and coincides with the fast day of Tisha B’av, a day of mourning in Jewish religious tradition commemorating the destruction of the Temple.
