Jewish Vatican City
Hosted By: Jewish Majorca
Every Thursday of August, Jewish Majorca and you will virtually explore the history and current life of Jewish Communities starting with the letters of the End of the Alphabet. We will visit Vatican City, Warsaw, Yemen, and Zimbabwe.
The Vatican Museums house a vast collection of art and artifacts, from the Egyptian era through the late Renaissance and up to contemporary art. Join guide Andrea on an immersive tour through this must-see destination as we visit the Picture Gallery, Sculptures, Gallery of the Candelabra, Tapestries, and Maps of the Vatican and explore our findings through a Jewish lens.
With its complexity of themes and symbology, this tour can be a special learning experience for kids in their first approach to images, symbols, colors, treasures, and frescos, with an emphasis on understanding their context within the Jewish diaspora.
Andrea is an American living in the beautiful Eternal City of Rome. She was raised in upstate New York and stayed in Chicago after graduating from Northwestern University. She became a college professor and relocated to Rome after falling in love with a wonderful man. Once in Rome, she began studying Italian and, in time, discovered she loved Rome so much that she wanted to share it with everyone!
