Ramsgate Day Tour July 2022

10th July

2022-07-10

Join Simon Goulden and Michael Rainsbury for an educational and enjoyable day out in Ramsgate, exploring the rich Jewish history of this beautiful town.

We will follow in the footsteps of British Jewry’s most illustrious power couple, Sir Moses and Lady Judith Montefiore, by touring the site where their home stood, the still functioning synagogue and the mausoleum. From the coast of Kent, the Montefiores left an indelible mark on world Jewry.

What connects Ramsgate and Bethlehem? What was it like having Queen Victoria as a neighbour? What role did Lady Judith play in Sir Moses’ notable achievements? Discover all of this and more!

The Day Includes:

Visit to the Montefiores’ home and short walk to the synagogue.

Lunch and refreshments.

Tour of the synagogue and mausoleum.

Keynote lecture by Sally Style, Montefiore Endowment Librarian Researcher: Letters from the Holy Land: Sir Moses and Lady Judith Montefiore, and their petitioners

An immersive educational experience – even the coach journey will engage and surprise.
