    Jewish Culture

    Jewish Culture Committee

    From the very start, the Foundation has been committed to transmitting and making the best possible use of the thousand-year-old legacy of Judaism — entire segments of which were annihilated during the Shoah. The Foundation supports all aspects of Judaism in its diversity, with a special emphasis on education, to ensure the transmission of Jewish culture from generation to generation. It is especially attuned to initiatives that promote Yiddish and Judeo-Spanish cultures and languages and encourage access to major Jewish texts.

    From July 23rd to August 10th, 2018 - Paris Yiddish Centre
    Summer Program for Yiddish Language and Literature

    Since 1997, the Paris Yiddish Centre - Medem Library has organised an international summer program every third year, under the pedagogical direction of Yitskhok Niborski.

    Synagogue of Carpentras

    The synagogue of Carpentras is the oldest synagogue in France still in activity. Built by the Comtadine Jews in 1367, it was rebuilt and enlarged in the 18th century. Today, it is the subject of conservation and development work.

    Proposing a project

    The committee funds cultural events, books, courses and lectures for the general public while at the same time focusing on youth-oriented projects (teacher training programs, educational projects in Jewish schools, etc.). It also encourages teaching and translation projects involving the Yiddish and Ladino languages and supports Jewish Studies with research grants.
