The Festival of Jewish culture

In 2016, Beit Venezia contributed to the 500th anniversary of the Ghetto of Venice organizing a festival of Jewish music, film, literature, and lectures at different Venetian venues. It included readings by Gary Shteyngart, concerts by Socalled, Minimal Klezmer, and Gabriele Coen Quartet, and the show Flamenco Sephardit. The screenings of new and classic Jewish movies was paired with lectures on topics such as earth, time, death, the sacred, women in Judaism.
