The Ghetto, Venice, and the Jews: A Historical Journey

Sunday, February 19, 2017 2 PM Jewish Museum
URL Copied
Founded in 1516, Venice’s Jewish ghetto marked the first instance of urban segregation in Western history and has since emerged as a universal metaphor of oppression and resilience. This roundtable of prominent scholars of early modern Europe invites the public to look at La Serenissima through the eyes of its Jewish minority, and to imagine a time when the concepts of nation-state, citizenship, rights, and identity were yet unformed.

Tickets: $12; $8 for seniors, and members of The Jewish Museum or Centro Primo Levi; free for students with ID
