Vatican to host menorah exhibition with Roman Jews

The Vatican and Rome’s Jewish community on Monday presented an ambitious exhibition on the menorah which will bring together 130 works featuring the iconic Jewish candelabrum, an ancient symbol of the faith.

The show on the seven-candle Hebrew lamp will run simultaneously from May 15 to July 23 at the Vatican museums and the synagogue complex in a city which once housed one of the oldest Jewish communities in the world.

The artifacts are being loaned by nearly 20 museums around the world, including London’s National Gallery and the Louvre in Paris.

Among them will be one of the earliest known depictions of a menorah, an engraved stone found at the site in Israel where a synagogue from the Second Temple period was discovered by archaeologists in 2009.

Christian medieval candlesticks inspired by the menorah, as well as the works of contemporary artists, will also be on display.

But history’s most precious menorah, made out of solid gold, will be missing.

The candlestick, depicted on the Arch of Titus in Rome, was one of the spoils brought back to the city by the Romans after they sacked the Temple in Jerusalem in 70 AD.

It was initially placed in the Temple of Peace but later disappeared, possibly looted by the Vandals in the sacking of Rome.

Rome’s Rabbi Riccardo Di Segni said the unprecedented joint exhibition, more than three years in the making, showed the “evolution in the dialogue between Jews and Catholics”.

“Times have changed, many positions have softened,” he told AFP.

    Let me remind you all that the infestation of the Catholic Church by the enemy Talmudists started in 1541 under many veils. The Catholic Church defeated the parasitic infection in 1773 but after numerous events from 1776 onwards the Church was re infested in 1814. From 1823 onwards the Catholic Church was under full attack from both the inside and out by the same Talmudic foes. Another point in time when the infestation started to overthrow the Church was in 1870 and by 1958 the parasitic host had won the battle and now the Synagogue of Satan was in full control which was made obvious in 1962 to the awakened few. Both the Talmudists and their Freemasonry Kabbalahists had total control over the Vatican and there’s even a Grand Lodge known as Ekklesia within the Vatican itself. Masonic brothers of Lucifer’s light fill the positions of power and make sure the consecration with Russia never takes place (against the third secret of Fatima) in order to protect the followers of Jahbulon in their quest for a Luciferian Doctrine scientific dictatorship after a final mass-scale global conflict.
