Tonight is the first night of Chanukah. Thinking of Roby and the Arch of Titus.
HAPPY CHANUKAH. Design: Carol Miller. Coated paper + post - it. 2017.
Visitors can go to Rome and see the Arch of Titus commemorating the Destruction of the Temple of the Solomon by the Romans in 70 AD. Word is that Italian Jews refused to walk under the Arch until the creation of the state of Israel in 1948. The Italian Jewish community is among the oldest Jewish communities in the world. Jews lived there during the time when the Temple of Solomon was standing.
