General


The Jewish Community of Venice is glad to welcome its guests to the only kosher residence of the city,
ideally located in the oldest and best preserved Jewish Ghetto of Europe,
right in front of the Jewish Museum and Synagogues and within walking distance to all the most important tourist and cultural sites and also Santa Lucia train station, the bus station, the cruise ship port and the vaporetto (public water bus).

The location of the Kosher House Giardino dei Melograni, in the historic centre but off of the most crowded streets, lends a sense of peace to the city’s charm.

The marvellous pomegranate garden, in Hebrow pomegranate is rimonim, that leads to the building, rapresents an exclusive and unique space, where you can spend pleasant and relaxing moments. The pomegranate in Jewish tradition is a symbole of prosperity and wealth. The 600 seeeds it contains remind us of the 613 Mitzwoth.

This residence is part of a historical building and has been totally restored and refurbished in a minimal and essential style.

Every morning from 8.00 to 10.00 am will be served a healthy kosher Halav Israel breakfast. Choose from freshly baked bread, eggs, vegetables, cheeses, pastries, cereal, biscuits, fresh and canned fruit, jams, juice, hot and cold drinks

The Kosher House is provided with all the necessary systems for a strict observance of Kasheruth and of Halacha: Hashgacha on the meals, automated elevators for Shabbat, exclusive night entrance, Mikve. The ghetto area is part of the Eruv.

Area

Built in 1561, Venice s Ghetto is the oldest in the world. Over the centuries, it has preserved its characteristic architecture of tall, many-storied buildings that accommodated the large population. The six synagogues were built between the early 16th to mid 17th centuries by the Ghetto s various Jewish communities -the Ashkenazi Tedesca and Canton Scholas-synagogues, the Italian Schola, and the Sephardic Levantine and Spanish Scholas. These buildings are important monuments of Jewish history, art, and faith.

Today the Ghetto is the center for Jewish religious and administrative institutions in addition to the synagogues. Next to the hotel is the Jewish Museum, with its extensive collection of traditional artifacts. Secluded from the tourist hustle and bustle, the neighborhood is remarkably peaceful. Yet it lays just steps from the vaporettos that take you in only 10 minutes to the Rialto Bridge, St. Mark s Square, Murano the island of glass, and to some of Venice s most famous palazzos and museums.

A few minutes away on foot from the hotel, you may reach Strada Nova, the long, lively walkway that leads to Rialto, the marvelous Gothic palazzo overlooking the Canal Grande that houses the Galleria Franchetti, a collection of important Italian and Flemish paintings and Vendramin Calergi, epitome of Venetian Renaissance architecture, today home of the Venice Casino.
