The annual European Day (or Days) of Jewish Culture kicks off September 1st.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the event — which takes place in hundreds of locations all over Europe.

JHE Director Ruth Ellen Gruber took part in the meeting in Paris in 1999 that established the EDJC, and she will be writing about it in a post on the web site.

Jewish cemetery clean-up summer camp @ Jewish cemetery Chernivtsi | Chernivtsi | Chernivets'ka oblast | Ukraine

The 10th anniversary of this “summer camp” for people aged 40 and over, initiated in 2009..

A main part is volunteer clean-up in the vast Jewish cemetery, which with 50,000 graves, is one of the largest preserved Jewish cemeteries in Europe, damaged in some areas and largely neglected. Participants will pull up weeds and undergrowth, clear overgrown paths between the graves and discover forgotten inscriptions on the gravestones.
