Klausen Synagogue (Klausova synagoga)
This section of the Jewish Museum focuses on customs and traditions. The central role of ritual in Jewish life is emphasized by a rich array of objectsperhaps the finest collection of craft-work in the entire museum. Downstairs, are masses of silver and tapestry from the many, now defunct Czech synagogues. Upstairs, you will see objects used in the home, from a marvelous painted circumcision screen dating back to 1764 and an upholstered circumcision chair (1805), with one seat for the child's godfather and one for the prophet Elijahto smaller items such as skillfully worked silver spice boxes in the shape of elephants, ships and fish. This is perhaps the most fun and interesting section of the museum, which gives one the feeling that Judaism still thrives in Bohemia and Moravia. The visiting hours vary seasonally, for specific timings check the website or call ahead.
