A Tale of Two Cities: Rome and Jerusalem

Paula Fredriksen, Boston University. Everyone knows that Rome destroyed Jerusalem in the year 70. But did you know how much Rome contributed to building it?

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.
