Take a journey through the beautiful city of Venice! Walk with me as I show you how to get from the Venezia Santa Lucia train station to the Jewish Ghetto, where you’ll find GAM GAM Kosher Restaurant, the synagogues and the Chabad House.
Do you know you can easily get to Venice’s Jewish Ghetto from the Santa Lucia Train Station. It’s about a five minute walk! If you choose to take a public boat, called a vaporetto the nearest stop is called Guglie. The boat stop is one minute away from GAM GAM Kosher Restaurant at the main entrance of the Jewish Ghetto. Watch the video below:

What a special two day celebration of Rosh Hashanah it was! (The Jewish new year goes according to the lunar calendar). We had hundreds of guests from all over the world.
Rosh Hashanah: Is it all just apples and honey
Usually, dinner hosts sit at the table with their guests. My husband and I were more like emcees, explaining all the symbolism and special traditions throughout the evening.
In Hebrew, “rosh” means “head.” Just like the head holds everything that controls the entire body, Rosh Hashanah holds an amazing potential for everything that we do for the whole year. With that in mind, I asked our holiday dinner guests, “Since we are at a new beginning, what is something that you would like to work on, to better yourself? What “hachlata tova” (good resolution) would you like to make?
How do you inspire others
I invited those who wanted to share aloud to do so. It’s known that if you want to challenge yourself with something new, share that endeavor with someone. Telling someone about it makes it real and holds you more accountable to get it done.
But more than that, I wanted whoever wished, to share to do it out loud, because I knew that even more than we each would be inspired by whatever we would take upon ourselves, it would encourage and inspire others as well.
Why is it important to challenge yourself
Some knew right away what they wanted to share. Others had to give it some thought. And there were those who did not initially want to share at all. But as more people spoke up, it did indeed inspire those more hesitant to speak up as well. We all want to do better and improve ourselves. That’s how we grow intellectually and emotionally.
Some of the many resolutions that were made at the Rosh Hashanah table were:
Take my physical therapy for my hip more seriously.
Take better care of myself.
Learn how to speak another language.
We discussed how everyone can do anything for 5 minutes a day. So that would be our starting place. Start small and make it happen.
Did you make a resolution on Rosh Hashanah? It’s not too late. Tell me in the comments below what you choose. I’m rooting for you!
