We Are Read – Barbara Kenerson


We Are Read  – Our own financial writer, Barbara Kenerson, reading the Jewish Voice at the ruins of the Greek Temple of Apollo in Ortigia, the ancient center of Siracusa, the home of the oldest mikveh in Europe.  This mikveh was filled by the fleeing Jews, who had continually lived there between 1000-2000 years. The entrance was sealed in 1492 when the Jews were banished from Sicily by King Ferdinand; it was not discovered until about 500 years later during a restoration project.
