Where to buy Judaica (a menorah) in Florence? Rome? Venice?

Jump to last reply

There's exactly 6 months until my Hubs and I leave for our First Anniversary-moon in Florence and the Dolomites. We're so excited. We're trying to learn a little Italian (I've got "I am a vegetarian" committed to memory) and with all the hotels booked, we now get to concentrate on the fun stuff!

We would very much like to buy a Menorah while we're in Italy. We will be in Florence, and then also in Rome and Venice -- all of which have Jewish communities. Does anyone know of a Judaica shop in one of those cities where we could find a beautiful menorah?

Also -- We would like to attend Sabbath services at the Grand Synagogue in Rome while we are there. Has anyone done that? I am assuming I'll need my passport for identification. I am in the year of mourning for a parent so it's important that I'm able to do this.

Thanks!
