Two People, One Womb: The Jews of Italy

Hosted By: Qesher

Jews have been living in Italy since the last centuries BCE, even before the destruction of the Second Temple, adopting local music, food, language, style, and customs. Despite tough times, it is largely a story of coexistence and mutual respect. The exploration will span from the history of Jews during the Roman Empire through the Middle Ages, the ghettos of Venice, Mantua, and Rome, to emancipation, world wars, and the present day, covering language, poetry, theater, liturgy, and more.

Host

Qesher

There are Jewish communities all around the globe with their own unique history, culture, places, and most of all, people and stories. All of them different, but sharing so much. The aim of Qesher is to connect these different Jewish traditions, not just to know of each other, but to learn about each other. We believe that there is great value in creating a deeper understanding within the Jewish world and exploring Jewish experiences and identities in all their diversity.
