Overview

Gershon is member of the local Jewish Community who invites you to discover the past and present of the Jewish community in Spain.

Going through one of the best preserved Jewish neighborhoods in Spain, we will retrace the footsteps of the great Jewish thinkers of the past. We will discover the origins of the first great Jewish renaissance in Europe, as well as the difficult period that preceded it.

Through clues, tangible and intangible, we will be able to appreciate the significance of Sephardi legacy. Today, this legacy is alive and well – it permits us to reestablish local communities, and highlight the impact of Sepharad on the Spanish culture, and Spain on the Jewish people.

Reviews

Wonderful, in-depth, and with special access!
Karen R, 05-06-2022
Wow! This tour is perfect for those who want to learn about Spain's rich Jewish (Sephardic) history in a place where the three cultures really come alive. Full disclosure: I work in Spain's travel industry, but I booked this tour for my visiting aunt and me to discover Córdoba on a whole new level. We were not disappointed and walked away feeling like we had a truly culturally enriching experience. Jorge is so knowledgeable. We listened to his stories and gained access to parts of the Judería that are not open to the general public. I have been to Córdoba multiple times, but this tour really shined a new light on one of my favorite cities in Spain and gave me such a new perspective. A must for anyone interested in Spain's Jewish history!
Brought Jewish history in Spain to life

My wife and I have been on several Jewish tours throughout the world and Jorge Gershon's tour was certainly one of the best. Jorge not only showed us the sites associated with Jewish life in Spain (pre-expulsion) but more importantly, his passion for the subject and his love of Judaism gave us a greater appreciation of this complex and fascinating chapter in Jewish and Spanish history. We particularly enjoyed the opportunity to visit the Casa de Sefarad (Jewish heritage museum) and spend some time talking with Jorge and the Museum's Director/Owner (Sebastian) about the time in which Jews, Christians and Moslems lived together and worked in relative harmony during the Middle Ages.

We highly recommend Jorge to anyone interested in learning about Sephardic Judeo-Spanish life, culture and history.
Fabulous!

Jorge is one of the best guides we have met , anywhere in the world. With respect to Cordoba and Southern Spain history he taught us so so much and we loved every minute!! He is very very knowledgeable and "teaches" in an easy understandable way, speaking perfect English. We highly recommend this tour and Jorge!
