The Temple of the Young is a small Orthodox Synagogue founded by Sandro Di Castro and Semi Pavoncello, reopened as a place of worship in 1985, and housed in a large room on the second floor of the building of the Israeli Hospital. The building was initially used as a kindergarten for the poor and disabled, and a Hazan went there to keep a Minyan with the elderly. In 1938 racial laws were promulgated. Rosh haShana and Yom Kippur continued to be celebrated until 1943 when Rome was occupied. The life of the temple, the only Beit-haKneset left in Rome, continued underground and was still active on the morning of June 5, 1944 when the 5th Army entered Rome and Jewish soldiers participated in haGomel's blessing for surviving that terrible year. The Youth Temple has become a welcoming place for the celebration of Bar/Bat Mitzwah, Weddings, and every Shabbat is offered a tasty Kiddush to members and visitors from all over the world.
