Ceremonial Hall of the Prague Burial Society Hevrah Kaddishah

The fomer Ceremonial Hall and mortuary of the Old Jewish Cemetery was built in a pseudo-Romanesque style in 1911-12 to a design by architect J. Gerstl. As part of the Jewish Museum, the Ceremonial Hall of the Prague Burial Society Hevrah Kaddishah (founded in 1564) later became an exhibition venue.
I was there quite early in the morning, no tourists around which is rare. A place with a very special atmosphere, silent…you almost forget that just a few metres away the city is waking up…
