Jewish Museum
of Rome

The Jewish Museum of Rome is located in the monumental complex of the Tempio Maggiore.

The museum itinerary allows, through the visit of the different rooms, the reconstruction of Jewish life in Rome since the first settlements, in the second century. Before the Common Era.

The Jewish Community has lived in Rome for 2200 years without interruption: this feature makes it one of the oldest communities present outside the Land of Israel.

The Museum shop

The shop online of the Jewish Museum of Rome aims to raise awareness of Jewish history and tradition and culture through everyday objects, such as Kiddush glasses (sanctification of Wine) or Shabbat candles and much more.

The objects are all of Italian manufacture produced in Florence, Rome and Venice.

The section of the catalogues of the exhibitions that took place at the Museum is very interesting.
