The strength of Jewish Italian women

The aim of the visit is to discover and explore the world of Jewish Italian women and their important contribution within the family, the community and in society at large. Jewish Italian women showed their interest in the religious life of the community by embroidering precious silks, which would then be donated to the synagogue. Various examples of their skills can be admired in the museum. Furthermore, other objects which are related to women may be found – and discussed – in the museum. At the end of the visit it is possible to have a conversation about the achievements of Jewish Italian women in literature, music, poetry, politics and education.
