Pisa's Jewish community is a treasure trove of cultural knowledge, art and history, as well as gastronomy. Many traditional dishes are prepared and handed down: from the Hamantash, triangular biscuits typical of Purim, to the Cholent, a characteristic stew that is cooked for the Sabbath in order to comply with Shabbat rules. Traditions that are at the heart of the guided tours that CoopCulture is organising on Sunday 15 May to discover the Pisa Synagogue in Via Palestro and the Jewish cemetery overlooking Piazza dei Miracoli through the ancient Porta del Leone (Lion's Gate).
In the morning departures at 10.30 and 11.30 at the Jewish cemetery, at 15.30 and 17.00 at the Synagogue in Via Palestro.
