BARCELONA

Though traditionally known for its Catholic history, Barcelona is home to a small, but active Jewish community. Recently, a Jewish Student Union (UEJB) and a Moishe House were established to create new opportunities for students to engage in Jewish life. In addition, there are reform, Conservative, Orthodox and Chabad communities, which hold young adult programming. Connect with KAHAL to find your Jewish home in Barcelona, Spain.
