    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.

    French music before and after the Great War - Fernand Halphen, Maurice Ravel

    The First World War marked a deep turmoil, from which the musical creation wasn’t forgotten. Performed by the Orchestra of the Campus of Orsay, Halphen’s Symphony in C minor and Ravel’s piano Concerto for the Left Hand allows us to better appreciate the stylistic diversity of the French musical production at that time.

    Jewish Artists of the School of Paris 1905-1939, Nadine Nieszawer and Déborah Princ

    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.

    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.
