Network jewisch cultural heritage

Jewish culture and history are reflected in testimonies, the research and interpretation of which is the goal of various scientific disciplines. Objects of Jewish cultural heritage provide information in many ways about political, social and economic, but also about religious, intellectual and artistic developments up to the present. To systematically document, evaluate and contextualize such objects, bodies of knowledge and traditions, to preserve them and to communicate the knowledge about them to a broad public is a task that can only be successfully and permanently accomplished in an interdisciplinary manner, in international exchange and with the involvement of a wide variety of institutions (universities, museums, preservation of historical monuments, Jewish communities, local and regional initiatives, experts).
