Museum

musei-aperti-padova-oggi

Jewish museum

Located in the historical centre of Padua, namely in the ancient Ghetto area, the Museum narrates the events and rituals of the Jewish Community of Padua from its origins to the present. Its premises are in the first and largest Ashkenazi Synagogue founded in 1522, used until May 1943 when a group of Italian fascists set it to fire.

Its restoration has given us back a fascinating space enriched by the women’s galleries mark and the 19th century flight of stairs.

Visit Museum & Synagogue

Italian synagogue

The Italian Synagogue (1548) is still the prayer site for the members of the Community of Padua. The hall is marked out by the elegant and refined “marmorino” decorations and delicate stucco works dating back to neoclassic times.

The polychrome marble Aron-ha-Kodesh –the sacred chamber- is positioned on the Eastern Wall facing Jerusalem and opposite the Bimah. They say the Bimah- the lectern- was made from the wood of a centennial tree uprooted during a storm in the town Botanical Gardens.

ghetto-ebraico-padova

Jewish Ghetto

A very old story is narrated through these narrow and restricted streets: the story of the Jewish settlement, its commercial, social, cultural and religious past.

Four gates closed the Ghetto: a sign on one of them forbade Jews as well as Christians to go through the gates at night.
