Foundation for Jewish Heritage

The London-based Foundation for Jewish Heritage works internationally on the preservation of Jewish Heritage; a heritage that faces profound challenges as a result of the great upheavals faced by the Jewish people in the 20th century – vast migrations and the tragedy of the Holocaust - which meant that many centuries-old historic sites became orphaned and, without a community of users, remain to this day in danger in many parts of the world.
