JEWISH Jaen

X

Jaen is well known for its olives and is in fact known as the World Capital of Olive Oil. Nowadays, it boasts a university, a shopping district, and other cultural attractions such as theaters, restaurants, and museums. The Jewish Quarter is formed of narrow, winding alleyways accessed through three gates. Much like other quarters, there are Arab baths which the Jews of Jaen were known to use on Fridays to prepare for the Sabbath. More baths such as the baths of Isaac are outside the church of San Andras, a leftover remnant from when the church was a synagogue. Stroll along to the Plaza de los Huerfanos, where the star attraction lies: the Menorah of the Diaspora, commemorating the wandering Sephardic Jews. The inscription reads: The footprints of those who walk together can never be erased. It's an invitation to make more footprints. Famous personalities: Hasday Ibn Shaprut (910-975)
