European Day of Jewish Culture -- Italy
The ninth European Day of Jewish Culture will take place Sept. 7, with the theme "Music."
Italy is consistently probably the most enthusiastic country that takes part -- last year, fully one quarter of the 200,000 people who attended Culture Day events across the continent were in Italy. This year, events are scheduled in some 58 towns and cities in Italy.
The pictures above show events in Ancona in 2005 -- a ceremony in the synagogue and the rededication of the Jewish cemetery after restoration.
The full program for Italian events has just been posted -- unfortunately it is only in Italian....
