Jewish Small Communities Network – Connecting Small Histories: ensuring sustainability in Jewish History Projects
The Festival brings together both the work of the National Lottery Heritage project “Connecting Small Histories” and 12 other major Jewish Heritage projects, taking the bold step of drawing the footprint of Jewish life in what are now small or former communities across the United Kingdom.
Through stories and memories we identify the Jewish legacy in the local economies and culture, beginning with six very different locations, Eastbourne, St Annes, Bradford, Sunderland, Cumbria and Somerset.
The events are free to attend and delivered on Zoom. For full details of the programme, and to register visit https://jscn.org.uk/heritage/history-festival/
Romanian Cultural Institute – Neglect/Exploitation/Erasure
Event video now available on YouTube.
The Foundation for Jewish Heritage in partnership with the Romanian Cultural Institute and UK Romania Group is pleased to announce a unique event exploring Romania's Jewish heritage and the challenges of its preservation and conservation.
Part of a series of three events Neglect/Exploitation/Erasure, examining the challenges of heritage conservation and preservation in Romania via the lens of distinct cultural resources, "Erasure" considers Jewish heritage as orphaned heritage – existing in places now absent Jewish communities. We'll learn about Jewish loss in Romania and hear from the Stanley Burton Centre for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, the Tarbut Foundation and Templul Coral on the struggle to retain Jewish custom and culture in Romania.
Broadcast over Zoom and streamed to the Facebook pages of the event partners, the panel will be moderated by the Foundation's Chief Executive, Michael Mail, and feature a special introduction by Israeli Ambassador to Romania, HE David Saranga.
