The Jewish Museum of Venice is located in Campo del Ghetto Novo, between the two most ancient synagogues in Venice.
It is a small but very rich museum founded in 1953 by the Jewish Community of Venice.
The precious objects shown to public, important examples of goldsmith and textile manufacture made between the 16th and 19th centuries, are a lively witnessing of the Jewish tradition. Furthermore, the museum offers a wide selection of ancient books, manuscripts and ritual objects used in the most important moments of civil and religious life.
The museum is divided into two areas: the former is devoted to the cycle of Jewish festivities and to liturgical objects, the latter -planned with a greater educational approach- deals with the history of Venetian Jews.
