Recognizing and Restoring the Roots of Jewish Heritage

Foundation for Jewish Heritage

The Foundation for Jewish Heritage's work is rooted in the central belief that Jewish cultural sites are repositories for heritage and visual chronicles of rich ancient history. The Foundation is committed to preserving these architectural sites across the European continent through four key approaches: cultivating research, spearheading advocacy, offering local partners professional expertise, and securing resources for preservation efforts. One of the Foundation's primary projects– Mapping the Historic Synagogues of Europe– developed the first-ever comprehensive list of the locations and conditions of over 3,300 significant sites to guide preservation efforts. Though much of the Foundation's work is focused in Europe, it also operates initiatives in Syria and Iraq, which were once homes to large Jewish communities.
