Jewish Pisathe synagogue and events of the community

Few probably know that Pisa, after Rome, is the city with the largest Jewish community.
Moreover, every year Pisa hosts one of the biggest events of the Semitic community, the Nessiah Festival, dedicated to Jewish music and culture.
In the city there is a large and important synagogue, since the Gran Duke of Tuscany Ferdinando I dei Medici gave freedom of worship for all his ducats already at the end of 1500. An archive providing information on the life of the community from the seventeenth century to the present day has recently been reorganised In the Synagogue of Pisa and the oldest Aron (a sacred liturgical furnishing) in Tuscany was also found in Pisa, a priceless item probably dating back to the Renaissance period.
