Jewish Heritage Europe wishes all our readers and friends a Happy Hanukkah!
Thank you for your interest and support — and thanks especially to those of you who have contacted us with questions and comments, with news of publications and events, and with updated or new information on Jewish heritage issues and sites.
It’s traditional to give gifts during the holiday — so we are posting some images here of synagogue wall and ceiling paintings and other decoration that almost remind us of fancy gift wrapping…
Hanukkah is something of a birthday for JHE… it was on the first night of Hanukkah in 2011 that our web site had its first public presentation, at a holiday reception hosted in Prague by the then- U.S. Ambassador to the Czech Republic, Norman Eisen.
For us, it was truly a moment to recite the Shehecheyanu blessing — even though we didn’t go live online until nearly two months later.
Since then, we have continued to grow. And we are still growing and expanding — with news items, resources, links, photos, articles, calendar events and other content being added each week.
