EDJC Organisers & Coordinators Meeting 2023

February 22nd & 23rd, 2023
Paris, France


The bi-annual meeting for organisers and coordinators of European Days of Jewish Culture activities returned to its face-to-face format. It did so in an extraordinary context and under the umbrella of an exceptional programme: the Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values programme of the European Union.

On this occasion attendees had the opportunity to spend two full days together in the city of Paris with the aim of training and reflection on how to work with this edition’s theme, Memory.

The theme of memory is particularly relevant to the EDJC, as it allows us to explore and remember the rich history of Jewish culture and heritage. The festival provides an opportunity to learn about Jewish culture and history, and to reflect on the role of memory in shaping our understanding of the past and the present.

During the meeting, attendees had the opportunity to participate in training sessions and workshops on the theme of memory, as well as to attend coordination meetings and networking events. The meeting also featured keynote speeches from experts in the field of Jewish culture and heritage.

The European Days of Jewish Culture is an important event that brings Jewish culture to the forefront and allows us to explore and appreciate the rich heritage of Jewish communities across Europe. The EDJC Organisers and Coordinators Meeting is a unique opportunity for organizers and coordinators to come together and to make the festival a success.

We invited all organizers and coordinators to join us in Paris in February for the EDJC Organisers and Coordinators Meeting 2023 and to be a part of this exciting event. Together, we could ensure that the European Days of Jewish Culture continued to be a vibrant and meaningful celebration of Jewish culture and heritage.

Participation in this seminar was free of charge for any organiser or coordinator of European Days of Jewish Culture activities and included all training, materials, coffee breaks, and midday lunches. It did not include transport, accommodation, or other expenses.

Who can organise a EDJC activity?

Anyone! Whether you represent a Jewish community, a cultural association, a municipality or public institution, a museum or even an individual, you can organise an EDJC activity. To do so, we invite you to contact your local, regional or national coordinator to be included in their programme. Click here to see the list of coordinators. The AEPJ offers training, resources and support to any organisation, institution or individual who wishes to organise an activity that allows Jewish culture to be shared with the whole of society. See below for resources for the current issue.

What is an EDJC Coordinator?

The AEPJ has coordinated this event at European level since its beginnings in 1999, giving cohesion, visibility and relevance to the activities organised. But as the European territory is very large and the particularities and needs of each country may differ from the rest, there is the figure of the National, Regional or Local Coordinator who acts as a multiplier and ensures the implementation of the activities in the corresponding territory and through an extensive network of institutions and organisations.

If you want to become a coordinator, please contact us.
