Guided Tour of The Jews of Corfu: Between the Adriatic and the Ionian

GUIDED TOUR OF THE JEWS OF CORFU: BETWEEN THE ADRIATIC AND THE IONIAN

September 22, 2022, 11:00 a.m.
In Person at JTS

Join us for a guided tour of this unprecedented exhibition, which offers a window into the rich history and culture of the little-known Jewish communities of Corfu. Columbia University and JTS, two of the world’s largest repositories of rare materials from Corfu, are displaying a selection of illustrated prayer books, historical documents, celebratory poems, and elaborately decorated ketubbot that tell the story of the island’s vibrant, distinct, and sometimes contentious Jewish communities. Situated on a major trade route, these communities thrived under Venetian and then Greek rule from the Middle Ages until 1944, when the Jews of Corfu were almost entirely annihilated by the Nazis. Space is limited.

GUIDED TOUR DATES

The JTS Library will offer a series of guided tours of the exhibition on its campus. Guests will be required to follow JTS Covid-19 policies in place at the time.

11:00 a.m.: September 22, October 25, November 8

6:00 p.m.: September 29, November 17

ABOUT THE JEWS OF CORFU

Today considered part of Greece, from 1386 until the end of the 18th  century, the island was under Venetian rule and closely affiliated with Italian Jewry. Yet it included Jews from many different lands. The earliest Jewish community was made up of the Romaniote–Greek-speaking Byzantine Jews. Later came a large contingent of Jews fleeing Apulia (also known as Puglia) in the wake of mass expulsions in 1510–11 and 1541, who were followed by refugees from the Iberian Peninsula at the end of the 16th century. The complex and often contentious relationship between the two main Jewish communities.

In 1864, the island of Corfu, along with the six other Ionian islands, was integrated into the modern Greek state and the Jews of Corfu were granted equal rights with the rest of the population. Tragically, the Jewish community of Corfu was almost entirely annihilated by the Nazis in 1944, and few people today know of its rich cultural history.
