New Realities of Jewish Heritage in Europe

Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)

Ruth E. Gruber is a journalist, author, editor and researcher. She has published and lectured widely and won awards for many of her works on Jewish heritage and contemporary Jewish issues in Europe, as well as on the European fascination — and embrace — of the American Wild West, its mythology and its music.

She has chronicled European Jewish issues for more than 30 years and coined the term “Virtually Jewish” to describe the way the so-called “Jewish space” in Europe is often filled by non-Jews. Currently Ruth runs the website www.jewish-heritage-europe.eu , an online resource for Jewish heritage issues that is a project of the Rothschild Foundation (Hanadiv) Europe.

Her books include Jewish Heritage Travel: A Guide to Eastern Europe as well as Virtually Jewish: Reinventing Jewish Culture in Europe, Upon the Doorposts of Thy House: Jewish Life in East-Central Europe, Yesterday and Today, and Letters from Europe (and Elsewhere).
