Hebrew culture and lifestyle in Milan
For the Italian Jewish community, Milan is an anomaly: no ghetto, no hidden synagogues, no abandoned cemeteries. In 1892, not distant from the Duomo, the Jews of Milan erected the magnificent Temple decorated with golden and bue mosaics, giving visibility to their faith and pride. Sephardic, Ashkenazi, Italkim/Benè Romi (one of the oldest Jewish minhag), Jews from the Middle East and North Africa with their a variety of edots made a Jewish world that sheltered and welcomed everyone, thus becoming an example of integration in the city's social and economic life.
Since Milan is an outstanding example of integration, multiculturalisms and inclusion, every building and every site gives us evidence of Jewish life, I suggest to visit the city Highlights and discover the Jewish contribute to the history of the city.
Before leaving, I'll give you suggestions about excellent restaurants and help you scheduling your stay in Milan for the next hours or days.
