The Foundation for Jewish Heritage Annual Review 2020
Jewish heritage is shared heritage, part of the broader national and global culture. Jewish communities lived and developed within wider society, one they were impacted by and had an impact on. It is a story of much cross-cultural exchange and mutual enrichment. This was a key message from the recent ground-breaking Council of Europe report on Jewish heritage. This report also recognised that Jewish heritage can play a significant role in contemporary issues, promoting inter-cultural dialogue, inclusiveness and social cohesion.
These buildings reflect a special and profound story that is vital for society of today. This is what informs our animating principle, that in preserving the past, we can indeed shape the future. The Foundation for Jewish Heritage Annual Review 2020 presents the actions we have taken in the past year to further our aims.
