Jewish-Israeli Cultural Days Thuringia
From 08.03. to 23.03.2023
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.
