We are happy to present our new newsletter and invite you to be impressed by the extensive activities of the institute in the past year.
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
The Leo Baeck Institute Jerusalem together with Leo Baeck Institute London and the association Freunde und Förderer des Leo Baeck Instituts are preparing a hybrid exhibition project centered on the Hochschule für die Wissenschaft des Judentums and the remnants of its library.
Chidushim is a peer-reviewed academic journal published annually in Hebrew under the auspices of the Leo Baeck Institute Jerusalem. We invite established and young scholars to submit original unpublished papers to the journal’s editorial board.
We call upon researchers at any academic stage to join a research group that will be active in the 2022/23 academic year.
