Jews in Latvia

Museum in Rīga

This small and rather informal space briefly recounts the city’s history of Jewish life until 1945 through artefacts and photography. Rīga’s Jewish population (unlike that of Vilnius) was very much integrated into the rest of society. You’ll find a teeny kosher cafe in the basement (entrance on Dzirnavu iela) selling traditional treats like challa bread and gefilte fish.
