CBI Adult Ed Program: A Virtual Walking Tour of Venice's Jewish Ghetto

12:00PM - 1:30PM  

Contact Rabbi Howard Rosenbaum
This is a virtual only program. To register go to cbict.org/calendar.

Virtual only. The ancient Jewish ghetto in Venice is in the Cannaregio district, one of the most authentic Venetian areas in the city, and yet quite unknown to tourists. In a multicultural and multi ethnic city, as Venice was, in an area far away from the center of power,the Jewish ghetto was born in 1516. We will try to understand what distinguished this area from all other Jewish quarters in Europe at that time as well as learn the history of the Venetian Jewish community till nowadays.
