  • Keeping a watchful eye over Josefov is the tower of the Jewish Town Hall with its 2 distinctive clocks. It’s a picturesque site of the Jewish Town Hall, a building that sits on a busy intersection that contains historic synagogues and the Old Jewish Cemetery. One of the clocks on the tower feature Roman numerals that we often see in our standard clocks. The other, Hebrew numerals with anticlockwise movement which is quite an interesting juxtaposition.
  • The town hall building comes from the year 1577, when he left it in the Renaissance style built by Mordechai Maisel. It was later modified in the Baroque style. Building is linked to the neighbouring High synagogue suffered at the same time. The building is a kosher restaurant, the seat of the Council of Jewish communities and is a Centre for meetings and social events of the Jewish community. The tower clock are powered by hand-pull-back movement.

  • 由莫迪凱‧梅瑟出資,建於1586年。鐘樓塔尖上有大衛星。它樓頂的兩座鐘相當特別。 較高的那座鐘標的是羅馬數字,指針順時針旋轉, 較低的鐘則為希伯來數字,指針逆時針旋轉,因為希伯來文是從右向左閱讀的。 就像美國舊金山的唐人街一樣,保有非常特殊的猶太民族性,社區裡的猶太雜貨店和餐廳,處處散發濃厚的猶太氣息。 猶太人的精明的商業腦袋聞名全世界,猶太人不管到那裡,不管受到當地政府多少的壓迫與限制,他們還是可以用頭腦賺到大筆的鈔票。 在歐洲供遊客參觀的猶太教堂也好,墓園也好,沒有一樣是免費的。不能討價還價,沒有優待卷,一年四季同一個價。 在布達佩斯這價錢只能參觀一個猶太教堂。但是在布拉格,同樣12歐元可以參觀六個不同的猶太景點,便宜到令人訝異猶太人怎麼會這麼大方。但是,想要參觀整個猶太區的話,就要付20歐元,另外想要在墓園區拍照的話,請另外再付1.6歐元。 總之,對於猶太人好奇的人,可以在布拉格把握機會一次看個夠,否則要到以色列參觀的話絕對不是20個歐元可以解決的。 猶太教的唯一的真神耶和華,不承認耶穌是救世主,不像天主教或是基督教一樣拜耶穌。但他們同樣敬仰舊約聖經中的聖者摩西,摩西為耶和華向猶太人傳達了摩西十戒。猶太教從此誕生。
