The Autumn Jewish Culture Festival in Subotica includes evening concerts and other programs on various days. Most will be held in the spectacular art nouveau synagogue.
Seating in limited due to coronavirus measures, and masks must be worn. Tickets need to be picked up at the synagogue ahead of time.
The Festival brings together both the work of the National Lottery Heritage project “Connecting Small Histories” and 12 other major Jewish Heritage projects.
“Connecting Small Histories” draws the footprint of Jewish life in what are now small or former communities across the United Kingdom. Through stories and memories it identifies the Jewish legacy in the local economies and culture, beginning with six very different locations, Eastbourne, St Annes, Bradford, Sunderland, Cumbria and Somerset.
After almost twelve months of work, the History Festival begins the telling of these “Small Histories”, bringing both them and a wide selection of projects from the project’s Heritage Hub to a wider public.
The program brings together story tellers, academics, our volunteer researchers and the research team, to paint a picture of Jewish life and heritage spread wide across the country, in towns and countryside.
Jewish Heritage Europe is delighted to be one of the partners of this event!
ICOMOS established 18 April as the International Day for Monuments and Sites in 1982 ,followed by UNESCO adoption during its 22nd General Conference.
This year, the theme is entitled “Complex Pasts: Diverse Futures.”
Each year, ICOMOS proposes a theme for activities to be organized by its members, National and International Scientific Committees, partners, and anyone who wants to join in marking the Day.
Acknowledging global calls for greater inclusion and recognition of diversity, the International Day for Monuments and Sites 2021 invites participants to reflect on, reinterpret, and re-examine existing narratives.

The annual European Day(s) of Jewish Culture officially kicks off on Sunday September 5th, 2021. However, in several countries events and activities are being planned before and after this date.
This year the European Days of Jewish Culture will take place under the umbrella of the NOA project (Networks Overcoming Antisemitism), promoting the creation of positive narratives around Jewish culture in Europe.
It is under this umbrella, and with the intention of disseminating and promoting positive narratives that highlight the contribution of European Jewry to a more pluralistic and inclusive Europe, that the theme for this year’s edition will be:
I-Tal-Ya is a collaborative effort to identify and catalogue every Hebrew book in Italy. It is being carried out by the Union of Jewish Communities in Italy (UCEI), the Rome National Central Library (BNCR), and the National Library of Israel (NLI) in Jerusalem, with the support of the Rothschild Foundation Hanadiv Europe.
The project includes cataloguing an estimated 35,000 volumes from 14 Jewish communities and 25 state institutions and will take approximately three years to complete.
The event is held within the program of Ferrara’s annual Jewish Book Festival.
