EDJC 2023 > International Jewish Culture festival “SHALOM IN ALL THE WORLD”
The International Festival of Jewish culture “Shalom in All The World” saluts the Klaipėda!
This year's Intarnational Jewish Culture Festival „SHALOM IN ALL THE WORLD“ focuses on the Jewish woman, her role and importance in history, culture, traditions, social life.
When we talk about a traditional Jewish woman, what comes to mind is a woman who is intelligent, constantly busy with various affairs, manages the household wisely, strictly adheres to the essential precepts intended only for her, and is devoted to raising children. In fact, it is actually not uncommon for her to earn money for a living, as her husband is constantly studying the Torah.
In history, we will meet many more than one Jewish woman who did not want to live acording to the principle: "The public space belongs to the man, the home space belongs to the woman". The dominant role of the man meant that a woman's role as a leader in society was almost impossible. But even so, Jewish women found ways to use their talents and assert their leadership in a man's world.
To become acquainted with the different destinies of Jewish women in various period of history, their political, cultural, social activities, achievements, which are known all over the world, we warmly invite you to come along and participate in this year's festival „SHALOM IN ALL THE WORLD“events.
This year, the festival will take place not only in Klaipėda, but also in Švėkšna and Gargždai.
From the 2nd of September to the 12th of October, we will be waiting to welcome you all to the exhibitions, fascinating meetings, movies, meaningful discussions, concerts, as well as creative workshops.
