Rome’s Jewish Ghetto

Rome has the oldest Jewish community in Europe, since Hannukah in 160 BC

Envoys of Judah Maccabee, Jason ben Eleazar and Eupolemus ben Johanan, were the first to arrive in Rome. Additional delegations arrived in Rome. Jewish merchants went to Rome for economic opportunities, and many stayed growing the Jewish population. Also, Jewish scholars came to Rome in 96 AD.




Exploring History is a publication about history. Instead of focusing on any particular time period of history, we explore anything about the past that helps our readers understand the world they live in today. We pay special attention to historiographical rigor and balance.
