WHAT WE DO
Beit Venezia weaves Jewish culture into the larger fabric of Venetian cultural life, serving both the local Jewish community and a general Italian and international audience.
We build on ten years of experience, organizing conferences, lectures, residencies, performances, tours; we regularly partner with the Jewish Community of Venice, the Jewish Museum, the University of Venice and numerous national and international organizations from Israel, United States, Germany, Great Britain, Sweden, and others. We foster research and scholarship into Jewish studies by offering a unique educational platform; we help Jewish and academic organizations plan their visits and gatherings in Venice, fostering the interaction between them and local Jewish residents. We offer introductory classes introduce the basics of Jewish life, languages and traditions to all interested people. We fight prejudice disseminating knowledge, information, art.
