Jews in Venice: Places to Remember

February 26 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

$30 – $35

This presentation takes the form of a walking tour through the beautiful historic city of Venice, exploring the places that speak of the Jewish presence. The first ghetto and the word itself originated in this city. There were five synagogues, and they spoke different languages. Little known is the Jewish cemetery at the Lido. The presentation will also include literary excerpts by notable local authors: the 16th-century poet Sara Copio Sullam, the 17th-century rabbi Leone Modena, and the contemporary writer Shaul Bassi. Join us as we explore the Jewish history of the “Queen of the Adriatic.”
