A Portrait of Jewish Life in Berlin

Hosted By: Qesher

Although associated today mainly with the Holocaust, both before and after the War, Berlin has been a center for Jewish creativity. Philosopher Moses Mendelssohn arrived in Berlin in 1743, and urged Jews to integrate into secular society. By the end of the century Berlin had become the center of the Haskalah (Jewish Enlightenment). In 1845 Reform in Judaism was founded here, and the Weimar years (1919-1933) were the golden age of Berlin Jewry. Since the Fall of the Berlin Wall, the city has returned to being a global center for Jewish artists, creatives, and others, who in turn have developed new communities and forms of Jewish life and thought.

Host

Qesher

There are Jewish communities all around the globe with their own unique history, culture, places, and most of all, people and stories. All of them different, but sharing so much. The aim of Qesher is to connect these different Jewish traditions, not just to know of each other, but to learn about each other. We believe that there is great value in creating a deeper understanding within the Jewish world and exploring Jewish experiences and identities in all their diversity.
