Overview

This museum has many artifacts from Italy's Jewish community during the Renaissance and Baroque periods, such at ketubot (marriage contracts) and ornamental objects for both home and synagogue. But, their showpiece is the Conegliano Veneto Synagogue, which was constructed near Venice in 1701 and dismantled and brought to Israel in 1952. This is still a working Synagogue, with services held here on Shabbat and holidays by the Italian Jewish community. Concerts are also held at the museum, as well as other special events, in their large painted hall.
