Jewish Cultural Tour of Sicily: History & Legacy
The finer details of Jewish tradition have left a tangible mark on Sicily, adorning ancient buildings and shaping local culture. A hidden mikveh (bath used for ritual immersion) continues to bubble with fresh spring water. Stars of David decorate municipal buildings in towns that have not had a Jewish community for centuries. Synagogue foundations and demarcations of Jewish Quarters are found throughout the region. Jewish culture and traditions are as spirited and as tenacious as the people who hold these values dear. Your Jewish cultural tour of Sicily highlights the influence of Sicily’s Jewish population in the art, architecture, and cuisine on a luxury excursion of a unique and untold history.
