synagogue, and Ms. Reuter
leads the way to a narrow stair-
way. We climb the 16 winding
steps to look at the thick stone
walls and the well of a mikvah
that dates from 1189.
Although she is not Jewish,
Ms. Reuter, who wears a gold
dreidel around her neck, has
learned much about German
Jewish history during her 20
years as a guide.
She enjoys meeting people
from so many foreign places;
and she also guides German
school children who come on
tours from their schools. Intro-
ducing them to sites like the
Rashi synagogue, she believes,
can lead to a better under-
standing of Judaism.
"Most German people don't
know this Jewish history," she
says. "Getting information
about Jewish history, I think,
makes it possible to have a bet-
ter understanding of the Jew-
ish people. That's why my work
is so very satisfying." ❑

is filled with greetings written
in German, French, English,
Hebrew and other languages.
Recent guests who signed the
book hail from the Netherlands,
Mexico, Portugal, Finland, On-
tario, New York, Sarasota and
Paris.
After we've walked around
the synagogue itself, Ms. Reuter
takes us into the adjoining
building, the yeshiva room.
Chanai Golov from Tel Aviv is
especially eager to see this; for
she has seen its replica in the
Museum of the Diaspora in Tel
Aviv.
But now she's standing in the
very place where Jewish schol-
ars studied during the Middle
Ages. This narrow room, also a
faithful reconstruction, is dom-
inated by a wooden table with
eight chairs. In one corner is a
much larger stone chair, which
may have been used by the
scholar Rashi.
Outside again, we walk into
the garden that is next to the

If he had, the com-

Philadelphia.
But what a distance it is
from the harsh, soot-covered
realities of urban life. In the
heart of the Shenandoah
Valley, the inn provides a
peak experience for those
wary of being "bed and
bored."
With its 12 rooms — three
are suites — the inn is a fav-
orite of politicos from nearby
Washington. But there's no
law that says its appeal is
limited to the visiting legis-
lators, Cabinet members and
Supreme Court judges. (Just
check the guest book to get
an idea of how far fans will
travel for the very best.)
