The Foundation joined Moreshet colleagues from Poland, Germany, Italy and Spain in Brussels for a series of meetings with leading members of the European Union.
Moreshet provides a forum for professionals from across Europe working on Jewish heritage preservation, embracing both public bodies, local municipalities and heritage organisations.
The purpose of the meetings was to present the work of Moreshet, which was itself established with EU funding, and discuss possible future support.
Meetings were held with Katharina von Schnurbein, head of the European Commission initiative on combatting antisemitism and fostering Jewish life, representatives of Culture Action Europe, Nicole Beer, a Vice-President of the European Parliament, Sabine Verheyen, chair of the European Parliament Committee on Culture and Education, and Anna Kedziorek Ramirez, a Cultural Policy Officer of the European Commission.
The Moreshet team held its own meetings to consider next steps for the project, exploring how it can continue to provide webinars on relevant topics relating to Jewish heritage preservation, and expand the network of people and organisations involved.
The group also had the opportunity to visit the Brussels Jewish museum and the House of European History, meeting with one of its educational staff members.
