Geocache Description:

Rachi de Troyes

FR : Rachi et la rue saint Frobert
Salomon Rachi nait à Troyes en 1040. Il est pour les juifs, considéré comme l’un des plus grands Penseurs universels. Il est le commentateur par excellence de la Bible et du talmud. Cette rue Saint Frobert se situe au centre de l’ancien quartier juif de l’époque médiévale, qui s’appelait « la broce aux juifs », Broce qui qualifiait un terrain vague, non bati, couvert de broussailles. Rachi a vécu dans ce quartier au Moyen Age, il y cultivait ses vignes. Il est mort à Troyes en 1105. L’Eglise désaffectée St Frobert, qui se trouve dans cette rue pittoresque, a été sans doute construite à l’emplacement d’une synagogue établie là avant le XIV ème siècle. Cet édifice a été fermé en 1791, mis en vente comme bien national et reconverti en logements.
