Preserving the Jewish people's architectural heritage against threats of destruction is the Foundation's essential purpose.  We achieve this by:

  • Research – creating an inventory of Jewish heritage sites, and identifying those at risk. The current project is focusing on historic synagogues of Europe.
  • Advocacy – making the case for Jewish cultural heritage and promoting interest in specific sites
  • Expertise – providing professional advice and guidance to create sustainable solutions for vulnerable sites working with local partners, while nurturing expertise in Jewish heritage preservation
  • Resources – securing funding for Jewish heritage sites at risk to ensure these are preserved, given a contemporary purpose, and saved for the future
