The Hourglass - A musical voyage through the Jewish soul
2017 - European Institute of Jewish Music

This disc gathers works written in the first half of the 20th century by composers in search of a Jewish musical identity. Some of them, such as Gideon Klein, were tragically killed during the Shoah. Others, such as Mieczyslaw Weinberg or Serge Kaufmann, perpetuate their memory. 

French music before and after the Great War - Fernand Halphen, Maurice Ravel
2017 -  European Institute of Jewish Music

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.

The Fondation for the Memory of the Shoah and the Foundation for French Judaism offer a program to support Jewish Studies in France.

Des pans entiers de la culture juive ont été anéantis durant la Shoah. Pour préserver et valoriser cet héritage plurimillénaire, la Fondation soutient le judaïsme dans sa diversité. Elle met l’accent sur l’éducation afin d’en assurer la transmission à travers les générations, et apporte son aide à des manifestations culturelles, ouvrages, documentaires, cours et conférences à destination du grand public. Elle accorde également des bourses de recherche.

Created in 2013 by Shmuel Trigano, the Université Populaire du Judaïsme offers a series of courses in the fundamental disciplines of Jewish studies. Combining intellectual rigor while aiming to remain accessible to the largest number of people, these seminars are open to everyone who would like to discover or pursue their knowledge of Judaism.

Dans un contexte difficile, la Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah intensifie son soutien aux organisations juives pour les aider à construire l'avenir du judaïsme français. Le Conseil d'administration de la FMS a ainsi engagé une enveloppe exceptionnelle de 10 millions d'euros sur trois ans afin de participer de manière significative au financement de grands projets structurants.

Since 2008, the Rachel and Jacob Gordin Fondation has helped Jewish schools fund property projects. The Foundation for the Memory of the Shoah houses the Gordin Foundation in the framework of a partnership with the United Jewish Social Fund, the Harevim Fund and the Rothschild and Sacta-Rashi Foundations.
