In the New Ghetto Square, among the most ancient Venetian synagogues, the Jewish Museum has sprung out since 1954.
The esteemed exhibits, beyond being important examples of goldsmith and textile manufacture dating between the 16th and the 19th centuries, are a testimony of the alive Jewish tradition
 
The Jewish Museum of Venice is not simply a closed exhibition space but a widespread museum, an urban, architectural and museum complex unique for its specificity. 
All the premises of the ghetto can be, as a matter of fact, considered as an experiential museum:  the same morphology of the place shows clearly the life conditions of the Jews forced to live in an islet whose very high houses, divided into floor lower than the standard, tell the problem of an overcrowding also highlighted by the high number of water-wells.
 
You cannot pull over, anyway the soul of the Jewish quarter, established by the Republic of Venice in 1516, if not leaving from the synagogues, or “Schole” built between the first quarter of 16th century and mid 17th century by the different ethnic groups after been settled permanently in the city and had been granted guarantees on freedom of religion.
The German and Canton Schola, according to the Ashkenazi Rite, the Italian Schola according to the Italian Rite and the Levantine and Spanish Schole according to the Sephardic Rite hence arose.Remained intact  over time, even with some later interventions,, such synagogues testify  the importance and the  vitality of the Venetian ghetto.. 
The synagogues of the New Ghetto are on the top of the pre-existing buildings and are hardly recognizable from outside, while inside they reveal themselves as small concentrated jewels inviting people to reflection. They can be visited thanks to some guides taking visitors to the German Synagogue, the Canton Synagogue, and the Italian Synagogue (on request) and according the periods of the year the Levantine or the Spanish Synagogue.  
Inside the Jewish Museum we can find “Aleph” The Museum Bookshop and a Kosher Cafeteria. "Aleph" is a small but decent bookshop specialized in judaica, one of the kinds in all North- Italian area. With almost 5000 books present it represents an inescapable reference for students, teachers, and scholars and in general all the people interested to know or to deepen the different aspect of Judaism.
In the Kosher Cafeteria it is possible to taste some Judean-Venetian delis, a fruit of the cuisine tradition, coming both from the Mediterranean Sea and the Venetian Hinterland
The Museum staff suggests guided tours to the synagogues and to the museum and offers the visitors an intense educational activity addressed to school children, to the families and to adults. The activities twist along the different places of the Ghetto and can include an intense workshop activity inside the educational room of the museum
Such a quick reading of the most important places of the ghetto wants to be a urge to visit the place where the Most Serene Republic has wanted to relegate the Jews for at least two centuries to discover with one’s own eyes the Jewish places of devotion and to meet a still very much alive reality which can be a source for further reflections
The Ghetto of Venice with its synagogues and the Museum is an inescapable stage of the discovery of the places in the City, testimony of its social and religious problems, along the centuries and guardian of an ancient faith and tradition.
