The Jewish Culture Week in Palma 2023 will be from September 3 to 26. Cinema, live music, an open day at the synagogue, a cycle of conferences, among other activities, are part of the program of this event.
We will all gather in the synagogue on Friday, September 15 at 7:00 p.m. to begin the new Jewish year of 5784.
And the following two days, the 16th and 17th at 10:00 am for the New Year's services, listening to the shocking sound of the shofar.
Together with Yom Kippur (september 26 and 27) they are one of the most important dates in Judaism, when we all get excited to gather in the synagogue to celebrate the beginning of another year of active and positive life, and hoping that we will grow and learn from one year to the next.
The Jewish Community in the Balearic Islands was founded by residents, mainly from the United Kingdom, in 1971 under the name of Comunidad Israelita de Palma de Mallorca.
Registration for the Hebrew classes that will be held in the Mallorca synagogue is open. Beginning classes on Tuesday, November 1.
The origin of this cemetery was possible thanks to the collaboration of the Jewish community that existed in Mallorca, so it was inaugurated on July 9, 1975.
Jewish Community of the Balearic Islands
The Jewish Community in the Balearic Islands was founded by residents, mainly from the United Kingdom, in 1971 under the name of Comunidad Israelita de Palma de Mallorca. The first public religious service was held in 1966 and its current Headquarters was inaugurated in 1987 in a very emotional act since, after 500 years, the Jewish religion was officially professed again. In 2004, it was renamed the Jewish Community of the Balearic Islands (CJIB). In the Balearic Islands there are about 1,000 Jews registered and 95% live in Mallorca.

Nissan ben Avraham
Rabbi from Majorca
From a very young age he was interested in his Jewish origins and Jewish culture because of his Jewish origins. In 1977 he moved to Israel where, after his conversion to Judaism, he took his current name. He studied as a rabbi at the Mercaz ha-Rav and Ateret Cohanim yeshivas, in Jerusalem, and at the Hesder Xiló Yeshivat, graduating as a rabbi in 1991. Then (2009) he worked as a subject teacher religious texts (Torah, Mixnà and Talmud), in the Talmud-Torah of Shiloh, and currently (2011) he arrives in Ciutat two or three days each month on a tour of several Spanish cities, in order to teach the Jewish tradition mainly to those who, like him, they believe that all children of the Jewish People need to know firsthand the broader foundations of Jewish culture from the point of view of the Jews themselves.
