The Leo Baeck Institute is proud to present the joint project

 The “Mitteilungsblatt” of the Association of Israelis of Central European Origin

German-Jewish immigrants have contributed hugely to shaping Israeli society in settlement, academia, politics, culture, economics and many other areas. All these contributions are reflected in the newsletter (Mitteilungsblatt, or MB) published by the Association of Israelis of Central European Origin.
In 2022, all newspaper editions were scanned in a joint project of the Association, Leo Baeck Jerusalem Institute, and the University of Frankfurt, with the generous support of the German Federal Ministry of the Interior. Marking the 90th anniversary of the Fifth Aliyah (the immigration wave from Central Europe), from March 2023, all MB issues from 1932-2005 will be available on the Compact Memory website, dedicated to the German-Jewish press. click here

After the event, David Witztum published a column in the “Maariv” newspaper linking the events of the book with the calls for the elimination of Israel in the Diaspora, calling on the Jews of the Diaspora to understand their inevitable connection to the Jews of Israel.
