Supporting Jewish cultural heritage in the Monferrato
The Casale Monferrato community distinguishes itself from many other Jewish Piedmontese communities since it is still lively. This persistence has been possible thanks to its museums, which entice numerous visitors from all over the world, but also thanks to the temporary exhibitions -regurarly realized- which make Casale its Jewish Museal Complex an important cultural reference point for the Italian audience.
These activities could be realized only thanks to the assistance of many artists and of prestigious organizations. The community receives financial aid, aimed to cover part of the budget needed to develop its structure and to realize its projects. Among the last ones are the reorganization of the ancient book’s Archive, the construction of this website and also the publication of new books.
Yet, the precious support received it’s still far to meet all the needs of the duty to be accomplished.
Support is still needed to preserve and save those unique treasures that are an essential part of a cultural heritage significative not only for the Monferrato area, yet for all Europe and the world.
Nevertheless, in many cases the support needed it’s not only a financial one…
Casale community and its cultural heritage treasures need support, to develop a Jewish life in this part of Piedmont, saving a patrimony which has contributed to build Judaism as we know it today.
In fact, today, for the perpetuation of our idea, we are seeking people giving importance to our principles and our values, having the power of helping us. We welcome developing aid but also personal participation in the complex life: we would enjoy, for instance, receiving a group of jews to organize the service in our Synagogue. We want in fact to keep alive a synagogue which is like a “ner tamid”, a perpetual light, in this area, in order to avoid its extinction.
