The Jewish Heritage Museum of Monmouth County presents The History of the Italian Jews, a talk by Rabbi Michael Klein, Rabbi Emeritus of Congregation Ahavat Olam, Howell, NJ on Sunday, March 31, 2019 at 2 PM. Admission is
$8 members, $10 non-members.
The history of the Jews in Italy spans more than two thousand years. The Jewish presence in Italy dates to the
pre-Christian Roman period and has continued, despite periods of extreme persecution and expulsions, until the present. The Jewish community in Rome is likely one of the oldest continuous Jewish communities in the world, existing from classical times through today.
This program is made possible in part by the Monmouth County Historical Commission through funding from the New Jersey Historical Commission of the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders.
