Are you kidding? Did you really just ask that/click on that? Why not Rome? Mild winters. Tremendous history. Pizza and Pasta every day! And a place with both an historically significant Jewish community as well as a modern one. Plus, there is a whole book of the Bible dedicated to the people here!
Rome has a vibrant Jewish quarter and incredible architecture and ruins. It is the seat of Catholicism and the city with some of the best art in the world. From the Colosseum to the Forum to the Arch of Titus and much more, you are going to love it. Just you wait. Rome is calling you! Are you Muchan?
We choose a Muchan city and country based on its Jewish historical qualities. At our very first conference in Berlin, we learned about the Holocaust and even traveled to Auschwitz in Poland. We met local Messianic believers and shared a Saturday morning Shabbat service with them. At our second conference, held in Paris, we learned the harsh realities of modern antisemitism rising in France and Europe. We didn’t meet too many local believers because, in reality, France doesn’t have many believers, let alone Messianic believers. We blessed and prayed for the few who were working among the closed Jewish community of Paris. At our third conference, in Madrid, we learned about the once vibrant Golden Age of Judaism in culture, art, science, commerce, literature and rabbinic thought whereas today’s local Jewish population is quite low. And finally, in our last conference in Prague, we delved into the radical side of Yeshua and learned about the history of Yiddish and Ashkenazi influence in eastern Europe.
