Seniors on the Go: Jewish Roma

It is time to take a trip! Even though we cannot currently travel physically, we can travel virtually. Join us on a two-hour tour of Rome's Jewish Quarter led by Micaela Pavoncello, whose company Jewish Roma Walking Tours has been leading tours of the city since 2003. On October 26, let Micaela lead us on this journey as we take a brief respite from our homes and travel through Rome via photos and videos. Micaela will show us the life of Roman Jews from emancipation until today, through the war and the Nazi occupation, and will describe the structure of Rome's Jewish community with many funny anecdotes only a native can share. This program is generously brought to us by Cathy and Morris Bart.
