2016 Jewish Cultural Heritage Conference in Warsaw, Poland

Our Executive Director, Orit Stieglitz, and our Director of Operations in Slovakia, Peter Hudak, attended the Jewish Cultural Heritage Conference in Warsaw, Poland, hosted by the Polin Museum of Jewish Heritage.

Ms. Stieglitz was invited to Chair the session on the meaning and roles of restoration and preservation of Jewish heritage sites in Europe. The session discussed tangible Jewish heritage and covered a variety of heritage buildings and spaces that have been restored or are in the process of being restored, conservation in different countries, and the role of these projects in Jewish and non-Jewish communities today.
