Translated Title

The Religion of the Jews in Italy


Publication Name

Publication Date


In this essay I discuss some historical and cultural paths that led Jews in Italy to transform the perception and practice of their religious tradition over the past two centuries. After a preliminary proposal concerning a definition of the notion of «religion», I identify the tools used by Italian Jewish communities in the field of education and in transforming their rituals. A few paragraphs are then devoted to a few specific events that I believe influenced the understanding and practice of Jewish religion in Italy. The purpose is to give an account of some of the most representative trends of the development of religious observance in present-time Italy.
