JEWISH NAPLES

The Jewish Chronicle - - Life/travel -

NAPLES’ JEWISH his­tory is thought to have be­gun un­der the Ro­mans in the first cen­tury. By the 15th cen­tury, Jews were well es­tab­lished, thanks to Span­ish ex­iles. The com­mu­nity was ex­pelled in 1541, and not al­lowed back un­til 1735. By 1920, there were close to 1,000 mem­bers. To­day, it has around 200, with a Sephardi syn­a­gogue at Via Cap­pella Vec­chia 31.
