Located at Hinteren Judengasse 6 in Worms
is the Rashi House. This Jewish museum stands in the place
where it is assumed the former teaching institute once stood.
It was here that the eminent Jewish scholar Rashi once studied
around 1060AD. The museum has been installed in rooms on the
ground floor and in the basement. The Worms municipal archive
with its photograph section is located on the upper floors.
The Museum’s exhibits are extensive.
It is possible to see the history of the Jewish community
in Worms including its destruction, which followed as a consequence
of the national socialist tyranny from 1933 onwards. It also
provides insight into the religious customs that accompany
a person throughout their whole life. Of course, the most
important scholar of the Worms teaching house, Rabbi Salomon
ben Isaak of Troyes (France), named Raschi, is also honoured.
