Still Traveling: The Jewish Ghetto Virtual Adult Travel Program

September 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Would you like to still travel?  Now you can without leaving your home – just stay still!  Let the Louisville JCC, the Osher Marin JCC & our other Program Partners whisk you away for an “armchair adventure” on an interesting educational & fun live guided group tour in a destination beyond your front door… even beyond the grocery store!  Forget the long masked airplane ride we take you across the time zones by Zoom where a local professional guide from a distant destination will take us to explore site or topics. Live Q&A photos graphics and video clips (when available) will transport us to the destination!  Your ticket purchase helps support our special guests – professional guides – who are mostly or completely out of work.

The Jewish Ghetto

For centuries the Venetian economy was based primarily on trade: luxury goods such as spices silk & pigments that were imported from the Middle and the Far East. No wonder the city soon became a real melting pot of different cultures and people: Greeks Armenians Persians & Turks spent the winter before taking to the sea again to return home. Many settled on a permanent basis and acquired Venetian citizenship. Laws and regulations regarding different nationalities were issued and in 1516 the Jews were the only ones to be granted their own quarter. Today Laura takes you on a journey of the intriguing history of hospitality and prejudice; important to more deeply understand the origins of this district.
