EDJC 2023 – Tag der offenen Tür in der ehemaligen Synagoge

On the occasion of the European Day of Jewish Culture 2022, members of the Auerbach Synagogue Society welcome you in the former Synagogue of Bensheim-Auerbach.
With their activities, the members of the Auerbach Synagogue Society would like to keep the memory of the Jewish congregations in Auerbach and the district alive.
On the outside of the synagogue building, there is an inscription on a memorial plate – a verse from Deuteronomy, 4,9:
"Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons’ sons."

ZAKHOR: honrar a nuestros antepasados

ZAKHOR: honrar a nuestros antepasados

Con la palabra ZAKHOR, la Torá ordena recordar, no de forma pasiva sino con alguna acción para expresar y reforzar la memoria ‘haciendo presente el pasado’.
En 2008, en respuesta a la solicitud de las comunidades judías de Barcelona, la Generalitat de Catalunya declara el antiguo cementerio judío en Montjuïc como Bien Cultural de Interés Nacional. Gracias a la investigación de un equipo de arquitectos e historiadores hoy tenemos más información sobre su extensión y límites.
En esta visita al antiguo cementerio aprenderemos aspectos aún vigentes de la tradición funeraria, la historia del cementerio, nombres en las pocas lápidas encontradas. Conoceremos los criterios y el proceso para recuperar una pieza del patrimonio catalán, esencial para la práctica de la memoria de la comunidad y la de la ciudad.

Chantier de fresque à Lhuître “Rachi, étude et transmission”

Réalisation du chantier de fresque de Lhuître.
Chantier ouvert au public.

Cette fresque met à l’honneur Rachi, ses filles, ses disciples pour rappeler la mémoire de la communauté juive médiévale de Lhuître. La figure médiévale de Sainte Tanche, patronne du village depuis 637 est également mise en avant pour souligner symboliquement l’importance des liens entre communautés juives et chrétiennes.
Cette fresque est la troisième du Parcours Fresque mis en place par l’Agence départementale du Tourisme de l’Aube dans le cadre de la Route médiévale de Rachi en Champagne, intégrée à la Route du Patrimoine juif, Itinéraire culturel du Conseil de l’Europe.

Le chantier est réalisé par les membres de l’Association des Passeurs de Fresques sur une maquette de l’artiste Jean-Jacques Jolinon.
