The Synagogue of Casale Monferrato is a common good, and the heritage of the Jewish Museum is a legacy for the future.

Today, the Jewish Community of Casale Monferrato enjoys a high profile and an excellent reputation resulting from constant and dedicated work. The rebirth and growth of the Museum were only possible with the participation of many public and private institutions and many people who have voluntarily supported the project step by step.

The Jewish community is a common good, let us support it together.

The Community of Casale Monferrato is distinguished by its vitality, museums, temporary exhibitions, cultural activities and frequent collaboration with other institutions. This has made Casale and its Jewish museum complex an important cultural reference point for the Italian and international public.

These activities have been made possible by the collaboration of many people, artists and cultural workers, leading professionals and organisations from all over the world. The community receives funding to cover only part of the expenses necessary to maintain its structure and realise its projects. Over the years, cultural activities have been realised thanks to the income from ticket sales. The contributions received are valuable, but they are not enough. Today more than ever, the Community needs support to preserve and save those precious treasures that are part of a significant cultural heritage, not only for Monferrato but for Europe and the whole world.

You can support us and the preservation of the Jewish cultural heritage in the Monferrato through:

  • 5×1000
  • liberal donations

Participating in the development, dissemination and promotion of the Jewish cultural heritage in Monferrato

Every day, not only economic support is needed, but above all tangible, human, proximity and solidarity. The Community of Casale Monferrato and the treasures of its cultural past need people to help maintain and develop a Jewish life and culture in eastern Piedmont, saving a heritage that has contributed to the transformation of Judaism, to the identity of Monferrato and Italy, allowing it to be alive and vital today.

For this history to continue to be present and not past, the Community is constantly looking for people who choose to play an active role and make the community grow, made up of all those who feel they belong to this reality, both religious and cultural. The Community seeks not only funding, but also people willing to participate directly in religious activities and celebrations by becoming part of them.

The Community is happy to host religious services and celebrations in the synagogue (e.g. weddings, bat and bar mitzva, etc.) to keep alive a synagogue that is like a ner tamid, a perpetual light, for this area, so that it will not be extinguished. The Community is equally happy to be able to welcome new people into the group of volunteers who make cultural and tourist activities possible, to meet skills and professionalism that can help in the daily maintenance of projects and places. Anyone wishing to make their time and skills available to provide guided tours in Italian and other languages, cemetery cleaning or visitor escorting can email us to meet and get to know each other.

The Jewish Community of Casale Monferrato would like to express its heartfelt gratitude for the invaluable and irreplaceable help

The daily activities of the Jewish Мuseum would not be possible without the volunteers who, using a traditional Jewish term, could be called “chassidim”, righteous men. The women and men who play a fundamental role ensure continuity, accompanying visitors, providing all explanations, participating in moments of reflection and cultural production, sharing their photographs, videos and investing in the dissemination and documentation of activities.

The Community of Casale Monferrato and the Fondazione Casale ETS also sincerely thank the many artists who have donated part of their works to the museums and who enliven the Jewish complex; the scholars, intellectuals and all those who share their knowledge, projects and visions.

The Municipality of Casale Monferrato, the Province of Alessandria, the Region of Piedmont and the Ministry for Cultural Heritage support the Community in its most attractive initiatives, as do institutions such as the Fondazione della Cassa di Risparmio di Alessandria and the Fondazione della Cassa di Risparmio di Torino. With the representatives of the monotheistic regions present in the territory, the Community maintains a solid ten-year relationship of friendship, dialogue and collaboration. The Prefecture, the Police Headquarters and the Weapons Associations are attentive interlocutors and guarantee the security of all events held in the museum complex. Special thanks go to The Rostschild Fondation Hanadiv Europe, which financed the inventory and cataloguing of the Community’s collection of old books. Special thanks go to the Union of Italian Jewish Communities and the Italian State, of which the Community is a part, which contribute to the preservation of the synagogue of Casale Monferrato by donating part of the proceeds of the 8 per 1000 and 5 per mille to this cause.

This is but a small part of the long list of people, institutions and associations to whom the community of Casale Monferrato wishes to extend its most sincere thanks.
