A small museum, a small synagogue and a very big synagogue all in about ninety minutes. This is a special place, superbly curated, describing the history of the Jews in Rome, a history dating back to 170 years before Christ. The little synagogue is Sephardic, the Great Synagogue almost church like and built in 904, totally grand, both untouched by the Nazis. The people in the Ghetto were - slightly more than 1,000 were rounded up on October 16,1943 and their story is also told in the museum. For security reasons you can only get into the synagogues with a tour supplied for free by the museum. And did you know Roman Jews are neither Sephardic or Ashkenazim, and have some of their own practices?
