Museums, Jewish quarters and synagogues throughout the whole of Europe opened their doors to visitors on Sunday to celebrate the European Day of Jewish Culture. More than twenty five countries organized events in order to pay tribute to this year's theme: Jewish Heritage and Nature.
Music, history, lectures, photography, literature and above all, great gastronomic treats helped celebrate the undeniable Jewish past of these European countries.
The project was originally launched in 1996 in Alsace (France) by B’nai B’rith Hirschler and in 1999 it was extended to Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Spain...more.
