About the project

About the project

The Jewish Heritage Network project creates a network of regions, towns and cities that are driven by the aspiration to identify and share best practices and to create a channel for communication between partners. Among the already established networks dealing with the Jewish heritage, this one distinguishes the strong involvement of local administration (local governments).

Partners taking part in the project are cities, municipalities, regions and other organisations, involved in activities for the benefit of Jewish heritage: Wrocław (City of Wrocław), Worms (SchUM-Städte eV), Hijar (Ayuntamiento de Híjar), Mantova (Comunità ebraica di Mantova) and Foundation for Jewish Heritage (London). The leader of the project is Malopolska Institute of Culture in Krakow.

Why Moreshet?

Moreshet (מורשת)  in  Hebrew means heritage, this word also includes the part reshet (רשת), which means network. This expression is a good description of our project –  Jewish Heritage Network.
We aim to establish a new network in order to : Facilitate dialogue on the topic of Jewish cultural heritage; Provide channels of communication to share successes and failures; Create the database of experts to enable the knowledge-based support for the municipalities, regions and cities.
Moreshet Jewish Heritage Network will continue beyond the two years of the Project, becoming a permanent initiative for the public administration and other organisations/ non-governmental bodies across Europe.

Moreshet is aware of the EU Strategy combating Antisemitism and
fostering Jewish Life

Moreshet has adopted the Working definition on Antisemitism by the
International Holocaust Remembrance Aliance (IHRA)
from 2016
