Jewish Heritage of Malta: An evening exploring a beautiful island's connection to Jewish history and culture

Evidence of Jewish history dates back to Roman times (4th-5th century) as seen at the St. Paul’s Catacomb site at Rabat, Malta, where several Jewish catacombs can be found alongside Christian burials.

The contemporary Maltese Jewish community is composed of immigrants from Gibraltar, England, North Africa, Portugal, and Turkey, arriving over the course of French and British rule starting in 1798.  During the early 20th century, the island’s Jews did not have a rabbi of their own and rabbis would often be flown in from Sicily to perform ceremonies.  During World War II, Malta was the only European country not requiring visas for Jews fleeing German rule. Numerous Maltese Jews, moreover, fought Germany in the British Army during the war. Today, a small but active community of under 200 Jews live on Malta with their own synagogue and rabbis.

Featuring guest speaker Dr. John Baldacchino (Director, University of Wisconsin-Madison Arts Institute), the program will present multimedia presentations showing Jewish heritage sites in Malta today.

Lecture by Serena Di Nepi (University of Rome La Sapienza). The Roman ghetto was established by a Papal decree in 1555 on the backdrop of major geo-political upheaval. Whatever the Pope’s goal and motivations actually were, the ghetto represented an alternative to the Iberian expulsion and a way to keep Jews within the Christian society.

Dressing the Sacred Text: Mappòt, Me’ilim and Parochyot in the Synagogues of Rome

The blessing of the women who dress the sacred text is the idea at the heart of the Rome Lab, the philological trace of a tradition that ties Roman Jews to Antiquity. Eight women are said to have worked in the Temple of Solomon to weave the parochet, the curtain that shielded the sacred Ark. The connection between the dressing of the text and the women who made the fabric is sealed in the Roman liturgy. Alessandra Di Castro (Jewish Museum of Rome), Serena Di Nepi (University of Rome La Sapienza) and Rav Amedeo Spagnoletto (Collegio Rabbinico Italiano) will discuss this tradition that challenges historical methods and Jewish law.

The Virtual Archive: Imagining I.N. Steinberg’s Jewish Refuge in the Kimberley

This presentation reviews an exciting collaborative project that constructs a virtual world to image and imagine I. N. Steinberg’s plans for a Jewish refugee settlement in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. This virtual world takes shape by mobilizing thousands of digitized documents from the Steinberg collection at the YIVO archives in an innovative and informative way. I.N. Steinberg was the charismatic leader of the Freeland League who lived in Australia from 1939-1943 and who sought a refuge for the persecuted Jews of Europe against the backdrop of World War II and the Holocaust. The presentation will feature a Unity gaming demo that illustrates how the archival documents are used to texture the architectural models in the virtual world. This five-year digital art and humanities project is funded by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

Melissa Shiff is Research Associate at the Sensorium Research Centre for Digital Art and Technology at York University in Toronto. She is a digital media artist whose current work utilizes virtual reality to engage with Jewish cultural memory. Melissa Shiff’s highly acclaimed projects have been exhibited internationally at such institutions as The Jewish Museum New York, The Jewish Museum in Prague, The Contemporary Jewish Museum San Francisco, and The Israeli Center for Digital Art. She is the artistic director of “The Imaginary Jewish Homelands of I.N. Steinberg.”

Louis Kaplan is Professor of History and Theory of Photography and New Media at the University of Toronto and he is affiliated faculty at its Centre for Jewish Studies. He is the author of numerous books including most recently Photography and Humour (Reaktion Books/University of Chicago Press, 2016). Professor Kaplan was a Visiting Scholar at the Center for Jewish History during the 2013-2014 academic year. He serves as the chief historian and theorist on “The Imaginary Jewish Homelands of I.N. Steinberg.”

and American Jewry." He has served at president of the World Jewish Congress, as executive director of YIVO (1980-1992), and as chief executive of the Forward Association.

Giuseppe Valadier’s Restoration of the Arch of Titus

Marina Caffiero (University of Rome La Sapienza) will discuss the restoration of the Arch of Titus; as Stendhal put it, of the original arch, “only a copy remains.” Restored by Raffaele Stern and Giuseppe Valadier under the post-Napoleonic restoration rule of Pope Pius VII, the Arch of Titus is one of the earliest examples of preservation of antiquity in the Eternal city. Loaded with symbolism for both Jews and Christians, the Flavian monument returned to public sight during a papacy that reshaped anew Jewish-Catholic relations in public spaces.
