Join JHE’s Ruth Ellen Gruber, the AEPJ’s Victor Sorenssen and the Taube Center for the Renewal of Jewish Life in Poland Foundation‘s Helise Lieberman for a wide-ranging round-table on the realities of Jewish monuments and heritage sites in Europe – from their destruction during and after the Shoah and the ‘Jewish archaeology’ of their documentation and rediscovery to the multiple challenges and strategies for their preservation and future use for religious purposes, education, tourism, culture, commemoration, and more.
The discussion will be moderated by Bill Echikson, Brussels Director of the European Union for Progressive Judaism.
The catalyst for the conversation is a set of strategic guidelines issued by Sally Berkovic, the CEO of the Rothschild Foundation (Hanadiv) Europe. Called “10 (other) Commandments – for the Care of Jewish Heritage.” They provide a framework to look back at what has happened, assess the current situation, and focus on the future.

Why should Jewish heritage matter? To whom does it belong? Who are the responsible stakeholders in its preservation? How can we ensure its future?
A #TJHTalks program organized in partnership with the Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland, the European Association for the Preservation and Promotion of Jewish Culture and Heritage, and Jewish Heritage Hard Talk.
Four experts will respond to these questions from global, regional, national, and local perspectives. They will discuss achievements thus far and how cooperation and strategic thinking are necessary to overcome the challenges that lie ahead.
The webinar will include a 45-minute discussion, followed by a 15-minute Q&A, in which you can ask questions submitted before or during the broadcast.
