The annual European Day of Jewish Culture and Heritage which takes place across 30 countries in Europe has started.

From France to Germany and Spain to the UK, the event's theme for 2006 is The European Routes of Jewish Heritage.

In the UK, which celebrates seven years of  being involved, the event promoted by Bínai Bírith coincides with celebrations to mark 350 years of Jews being allowed back in Britain.

"With each successive year the number of participants has increased and, most importantly, it has engendered genuine enthusiasm and interest from people right across the board," UK organiser Valerie Bello told website European Jewish Press.

"This year an even greater number of historic synagogues and Jewish heritage sites all over the country will be opening their doors to the wider community. In London visitors will be welcome to view synagogues dating from the 18th and 19th centuries in the East End, as well as those built more recently, established and endowed as the early immigrants moved away from their original communities. Many have magnificent interiors and are listed by English Heritage."

As well as special open days, other events include walking tours of historic Jewish areas such as the East End of London and exhibitions at the Jewish Museum in and Ben Uri Art Gallery.
