“Io so’ jodìo romano”: Notes on the Jewish-Roman Dialect

Daniel Leisawitz, Muhlenberg College. What language did the Jews of Rome speak before Judeo-Roman?

Together with Yeshiva University Museum’s exhibition The Arch of Titus – from Jerusalem to Rome, and Back, Centro Primo Levi and the Jewish Museum of Rome present the Rome Lab, a learning space dedicated to Roman Jews, to the formative centuries of Western Judaism and the 22-centuries-long relationship between Rome and Jerusalem.

Through January 2018, the general public, students, and scholars are welcome to join and participate in the conversation. Additional info at www.primolevicenter.org.

Presented by: Yeshiva University Museum, NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli Marimò, Università di Roma La Sapienza, Italian Cultural Institute, ENIT Italian Tourism Board, Foundation for Jewish Cultural Heritage in Italy, American Sephardi Federation & Center for Jewish History.
