The New Synagogue was built in memory of the Ghetto which was created under the orders of Paolo IV in the middle of the 16th Century. Rome's Jewish population was forced to live in the Ghetto's squalid conditions until 1870. The Synagogue remains under continual police surveillance. The Jewish community has a permanent exhibition inside which includes prints, silver, holy objects and other items which help to introduce visitors to Jewish culture.
