After the sightseeing tour, you’ll get inside the Grand Choral Synagogue and find out about its architecture, the history of its foundation and construction, as well as its life today and in the past. At the Russian Museum of Ethnography you will learn about the history of Jews that lived on the territory of the Russian Empire, their everyday life activities, occupation, and culture.   Before returning to your hotel you will visit the YESOD center where you will get to see how the Jewish community of today lives.
