The pilgrimage route connects the graves of the former wonder rabbis, and pilgrims can learn about their lives, the legends associated with them, the history and traditions of the Jewry of the towns on the route, their role in the region as well as the breathtaking landscape of the Tokaj-Hegyalja region. The pilgrimage starts and finishes at the Jewish Cultural and Information Centre (the former rabbi school) in Mád. All of this makes Mád the emblematic Jewish cultural memorial centre of the Tokaj-Hegyalja region. In Mád, you can see a synagogue built in the ‘zopf’ style at the end of the 18th century. The Mád synagogue is one of the most beautiful in the world and is rightfully featured in the American album “The 100 Most Beautiful Synagogues In The World”. The largest Jewish cemetery in Tokaj-Hegyalja can also be found here, and houses the graves of Abraham Schwartz and Mordecai Winkler, two renowned rabbis. Jewish families arriving from Poland started settling in Tarcal from the mid-1700's.
