Casa Adret is the AEPJ headquarters sited in the Old Jewish quarter of Barcelona, but also a Research & Development Hub on Jewish Heritage.
Casa Adret is a transversal project that aims to create a space that serves as melting pot of history, community, research, conference space, centre for social change and a space for connection for all interested in Jewish life. Set in a beautiful medieval house on the main Street of the ?Call?, the historic Jewish neighbourhood, the property was owned by the Jewish family of Astruch Adret until the riots of 1391, which caused the disintegration of Barcelona?s once thriving Jewish community. An architectural gem, the building hosts features of original gothic structures mixed with modern, where the two carved spaces for mezuzahs found in the door frames act as a reminder of the era this house once thrived.
Partners and initiations centred in Casa Adret are: Mozaika, Barcelona?s Jewish Cultural Platform, founders of Casa Adret, Sefer Barcelona - Barcelona?s Jewish book festival, the Salam Shalom Barcelona project, Toldot Barcelona, Festival de Cinema Jueu de Barcelona and the European Association for the Preservation and Promotion of Jewish Culture and Heritage (AEPJ).
Casa Adret aims to reflect the diversity of the Barcelona community and promote best the Jewish values and better understanding.
