    What to Expect
    Greet your guide in the lobby of your Moscow hotel and receive an overview of Moscow’s Jewish heritage. Head to the century-old Moscow Choral Synagogue and is considered to be one of the most important in Russia.

    Take a walk through the historic center of Moscow and visit the Bolshaya Bronnaya Synagogue built by tycoon Lazar Solomonovich Polyakov.

    Climb up to the summit of Poklonnaya Hill for dramatic views of the city and visit the Holocaust Memorial Synagogue, which supplements an Orthodox church and a Mosque.

    Proceed to Kitay Gorod, for a delicious, Kosher lunch (at your own expense), followed by a tour of Moscow's second-oldest district and learn about its 14th-century history.

    Discuss local Jewish traditions and the origins of Russia’s Jewish community before you arrive at the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center, said to be the biggest Jewish exhibition worldwide.

    End the tour at the Museum of Jewish History in Russia or back at your hotel, depending on your preference.
