After the expulsion of the Jews from the imperial cities in the late Middle Ages, Fürth became the religious centre of Jewish life in southern Germany. In the heyday of Jewish culture in the 18th century there were several synagogues, prayer rooms, religious learning centers and a hospital of it's own. Interesting to know is that the first Jewish orphanage in Germany was founded here and the city was one of the European centers of Hebrew letterpress printing.
