Thus began an interreligious dialogue in which Jewish Roma Walking Tours and its founder Micaela Pavoncello strongly believe and this is the one of the reasons why Jewish Roma has become a point of reference for those who study and want to deepen the points of contact between the Jewish and Christian cultures.
On April 13, 1986, the Synagogue of Rome hosted Pope John Paul II, Wojtyła, who, on that occasion, addressed the Chief Rabino of Rome Elio Toaff as “my elder brother.”
We are aware that the fight against discrimination is carried out with cultural knowledge and awareness. The experience and the sharing provided by our tours are an opportunity for relationships and discussion, encouraging research and dialogue, promoting the relationship between past and present. Only knowing our past can we understand and face these troubled present times.
For these reasons our Jewish tours are designed for schools, universities, academies, seminarians that want to include one of these routes in their studio program, Jewish Federations and leader groups.
Over the years, we have organized tours for the Russell Bernie Fellowship in Interreligious Studies of the Angelicum in Rome, Elon College, American Academy in Rome, Culinary Institute of New York, the International Jewish Leaders Group, Camp Ramah, Duquesne University, Aardvark Israel post high school, Kosherica Kosher Cruises, and other notable groups.
