We will discover Jewish Syracuse by exploring its borders, meeting places, and rituals. The Giudecca neighborhood, which is enclosed by streets of Greek origins, reveals the long history of the Sicilian Jews who enlivened the city life of the main towns for more than 1,000 years. We will go for a stroll around Ortigia to find out about the Jews by looking at the Mikveh (the ritual purification bath), the roofless aisles of the ancient city synagogue, whose Latin name is Meschita Judeorum, and the Hebrew inscriptions that are reminiscent of their burial places.
