Moreshet: Network of Jewish Heritage Cities

The Foundation convened an international consortium to successfully bid for European Union funding to create a network of cities and towns that contain significant Jewish heritage.  The network, called Moreshet, is collectively examining models and tackling issues relating to how Jewish heritage is being addressed across Europe. 

 

Council of Europe Jewish Heritage Report

The Foundation was appointed the expert body to guide a research initiative undertaken by the Council of Europe to examine the state of Jewish heritage in Europe today.  The final Report, which was approved by the Council’s Parliamentary Assembly, makes a number of important observations and recommendations for Member States to consider.
