My husband and I took the trip to Rome this spring in honor of his birthday. I had searched for a place with rich Jewish history, one of my husband’s great passions, and also good kosher food. Rome fit the bill and, with its short three-hour flight from Israel, made for the perfect quick getaway. The first thing we saw when we arrived at our hotel in Rome was a fountain. Rome is filled with fountains, but this one in particular, as we would later learn, has a special link to Rome’s Jewish community.
