This year Berlin celebrated 30 years of the Jewish Culture between 4th November and 12 November. The Days of the Jewish Culture presented the diversity of Jewish Culture in Germany today through theatrical performances, readings, discussions, exhibitions, church services, and concerts featuring outstanding performers from around the world.

The festival was launched in 1987 as part of the celebrations of the 750th anniversary of the founding of Berlin. Since then the festival became a part of the cultural scene in re-unified Berlin and a cultural must for the Jewish community, Berlin residents and their guests. In the past the Days of Jewish Culture have been dedicated to various cities, such as Vienna, Odessa, New York, Paris and Tel Aviv.

The festival will host discussions, performances, concerts and other cultural activities dedicated to a special theme. The entire program of the Days of Jewish Culture will be available soon on the official page of the event:

Jewish community has a strong occurrence in the cultural life of Berlin lead by the “Jews in Berlin” thus allowing locals and tourists to come in touch with Jewish traditions and Jewish life in Germany.

Tourists and Berliners are awaited to “live” a Jewish day and be members of its community.  Days of Jewish Culture in Berlin are a continuity of the European Days of Jewish Culture that had already taken place in the European community.

As well as to the cultural enrichment the participants gain from the events of Days of Jewish culture, the festival aims to preserve the original tradition of the community that developed for a long time in Berlin – the Jewish community. The events are opening opportunities to connecting traditional society of Jews with the Berliner society. Definitely, cultural day will create a mixture, and exchange inside the city of Berlin, and outside it, thankful to the tourists.
