Many people do not know of the existence of a separate Jewish branch in Italy; the Jews have played some part in Italian culture since ancient Rome and Italian Jews are not necessarily Sephardic (rather the same as Iraqi Jews are a branch unto themselves).
This beautiful synagogue has been refurbished and has a new rabbi, all the more remarkable considering the small size of Siena's Jewish community!
If you are VERY lucky the tour is given by a congregant, who is a lifetime member of this small community.
