European Day of Jewish Culture 2007 (2.9.07)

A day that takes place almost all over Europe - this year in 30 countries  on Sunday, September 2nd, 2007 - to discover the cultural and historical heritage of Judaism! Thanks to open doors, circuits, exhibitions, lectures and concerts, the wider public is invited to get to know Klezmer music, contemporary art, theatre and to visit synagogues, old cemeteries, ritual baths and ancient Jewish quarters. This year, the chosen theme, «Testimonies», enables to highlight the imprints which have been left by the Jews everywhere they have lived.

In particular, solidarity in the participation countries, i.e. Austria, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine and United Kingdom, allows to unite over 10.000 volunteers and institutional persons working to organise the events. Jewish associations, history groups, tourist boards, municipalities, museums, artists, students, all work toward the preparation of the Day, while the official programme is being spread through the Internet site (www.jewisheritage.org), which was created for this purpose.

Launched in 1996 in the Bas-Rhin (Alsace/France), under the Open Day formula by the Jewish association B'nai B'rith Hirschler in Strasbourg, in partnership with the Agence de Développement Touristique du Bas-Rhin (Tourist board of Lower Alsace), the day was progressively extended and became the European Day of Jewish Culture in 2000. From 2000 to 2003, this event was co-organised on the European level by four structures: the Agence de Développement Touristique du Bas-Rhin, B’nai B’rith Europe, the European Council of Jewish Communities and Red de Juderías de España (Spanish Jewish Network). Since 2004, the event is being co-organised by B’nai B’rith Europe, the European Council of Jewish Communities and Red de Juderías de España.
For more information: www.jewisheritage.org ; details of the events online from June 2007 onwards.
