ANCIENT OSTIA AND THE SYNAGOGUE
Jews have been present in Rome for over 2,000 years. In 70 C.E. the Community grew with the arrival of the slaves deported by Titus to Rome after the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem. To this period belongs the Synagogue of Ostia Antica, the old port of Rome, at the “mouth” of the storied Tiber River. This is the largest synagogue discovered in the western world and among the oldest in Europe. It is also the only Synagogue still standing among those built during the same period.
