Jewish Heritage Europe
Jewish Heritage Europe was developed in response to a call for effective strategies regarding the restoration, use, upkeep, and documentation of Jewish heritage sites across Europe. Since going live online in February 2012, JHE has become the most comprehensive web site providing both current news and a wealth of resources on issues relating to Jewish built heritage across Europe. It is a flagship project of the Rothschild Foundation Hanadiv Europe.
The Conference begins on Sunday, June 26, at 15:00 and closes at 18:10 on Monday, June 27. Sessions will consist of panels on concepts related to Jewish heritage issues, with ample time for discussion.
