Welcome to the
Jewish Heritage Foundation
- a non-profit organization supporting research and preservation of Jewish culture
After decades of wars, genocide and oppression witnessed by the twentieth century, a lot of Jewish communities declined and their cultural heritage was considered lost. Many historical and cultural artefacts have nonetheless survived the catastrophe being kept in numerous state museums and archives, as well as in some communities and private collections, waiting for a new generation of scholars to make them widely accessible. The Jewish Heritage Foundation sees its goal in collecting, researching and publishing sources of Jewish history, and considers it to be a task of paramount importance.
