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.
Ivrit bedaka is a warm daily encounter with the Hebrew language that invites you, every day, every week, to explore the byways of a language that spans millennia. Ivrit bedaka is suitable for beginning and advanced Hebrew speakers.
The First World War marked a deep turmoil, from which the musical creation wasn’t forgotten.

Between 1905 and 1939, Paris attracted artists from all over the world. In this melting pot centered on Montparnasse, one group set itself apart: the Jewish artists who came from Russia, Poland, and across Central Europe. Although their styles varied, a common fate united them: they had fled the anti-Semitic persecutions in their home countries.
