Jewish Worms

Starting in the 900s, Jewish life in Worms – known as Varmaiza in medieval Jewish texts – was centred on the Judengasse, in the northeast corner of the Altstadt. Today, it’s where you’ll find a medieval synagogue, a 12th-century ritual bath and Worms’ Jewish museum.

Before 1933, 1100 Jews lived in the city. A Jewish community was re-established in the late 1990s.
