This year the European Day of Jewish Culture will take place on Sunday 6 September 2020 except in NAPLES, where it will be celebrated on SUNDAY 13 SEPTEMBER 2020.
This initiative, born in Alsace in 1996, was then extended to other European countries, with the aim of making the public discover a culture as rich as the Jewish one, often unknown to the most unknown or which in some countries was in danger of disappearing. It is a full day during which the public is invited to discover the artistic and cultural heritage of Judaism, its rites, its traditions, its history.
Due to the Covid emergency, our program will take place outdoors this year.Old Jewish Cemetery - via del Cimitero Israelita corner via Aquileia ,
where guided tours are scheduled at 10.30 am; 11.30 and 12.30.
Comfortable shoes are recommended, and the use of a mask is mandatory even when outdoors.
