The Concluding Conference of the “Preserving Jewish Cemeteries” EU co-funded grant took place online, on Monday, 3rd July 2023. It was attended by around 90 participants, and the recording of the conference, has reached many more interested parties. 

This conference concluded an 18 month project undertaken jointly by the ESJF European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative, Centropa and the Foundation for Jewish Heritage which has focused on preserving Jewish cemeteries in seven European countries. As a core deliverable of the EU’s strategy for combating antisemitism and fostering Jewish life, our efforts have involved raising awareness in local communities, implementing educational projects, and integrating Jewish cemeteries into the school curriculum.
