A Jewish Ghetto Worth Saving-Why is Diane Von Furstenberg paying to restore a Jewish Ghetto?

This was at a dedicated Jewish/Support Israel page on Facebook that I belong to.

I am in the process of going back to what I should be…………………….The reasons are lengthy but most have seen the post for our dear friend Buck and me in Tallit. I guess this is part of that process

“The ghetto that trapped Venice’s Jews is getting a renovation after 500 years”

“Something like Venice no one can do. Only God. The greatest achievement for mankind and the one that approaches it most to God, since it cannot create such wonders, is to preserve those that exist.
—French philosopher Simone Weil (Venise Sauvée 1955)”
