European Day of Jewish Culture 2015

Sunday, September 6th 2015

The 16th European Days of Jewish Culture will take place this September 2015 under the motto "Bridges".

It’s a very general concept, adaptable to anything that joins or connects.

The two shores joined by a bridge fully retain their identity, yet they are enriched and subtly changed by their communication.

We are sure the different participants all over Europe will handle the subject matter in many original and creative ways.

For any further information please contact the European coordinator of the event at:

Here are a few inspirational quotes:

Kol ha’olam kulo gesher tzar me’od, veha’ikar lo lehitpahed klal (All the world is a very narrow bridge, and the most important thing is not to be overwhelmed by fear).

Rabbi Nachman of Breslav

The wisdom of bridges comes from the fact that they know both sides, they know both shores!

Mehmet Murat Ildan

But misfortunes do not last forever (this they have in common with joys) but pass away or are at least diminished and become lost in oblivion. Life on the kapia always renews itself despite everything and the bridge does not change with the years or with the centuries or with the most painful turns in human affairs. All these pass over it, even as the unquiet waters pass beneath its smooth and perfect arches.

Ivo Andric, The Bridge on the Drina

Something intended to reconcile or connect two seemingly incompatible things.
