Founded in 1991, the Förderverein für jüdisch-israelische Kultur in Thüringen e.V. (Association for the Promotion of Jewish-Israeli Culture in Thuringia), together with the Jewish Community of Thuringia, has since then brought diverse facets of Jewish life to small and large stages throughout Thuringia every year.
The Culture Days see themselves as a cross-genre and culturally mediating festival. Readings, concerts, lectures, tours, workshops and film screenings create opportunities for encounters in many Thuringian cities and communities. Venues are synagogues and established cultural venues - coordinated with the respective municipal partners.
One highlight in 2023 will be the concert of Israeli singer NOA. More information and the full program here.

On 7:00 pm at 20.02.2023 (CET UTC+01:00)
The New Israel Fund (NIF) Germany and Bet Debora invite you to a talk with two inspiring forerunners of Haredi feminist activism in Israel: Pnina Pfeuffer, founder and CEO of *New Haredim* and Esty Shushan, a Haredi and Mizrachi social activist and entrepreneur, founder and CEO of *Nivcharot – Ultra-Orthodox (Haredi) Women for Voice and Equality*.Read and discuss on MyGIX
Guided by their own personal experiences, the discussion will touch upon the meaning of feminism and activism in a Haredi society, look at the changes they aspire to introduce into Israeli politics, and consider several burning issues pertaining to the identity of Israeli society and to the place of the Haredi communities within it, such as: gender equality, integration of “secular” subjects (i.e., mathematics, English, and Hebrew) within the Haredi school system, participation in academia, the labour market and in the army.
