On the first weeknd of May 2022 the last face-to-face seminar of the Mi Dor Le Dor programme was celebrated in Palermo, which offers training in Jewish heritage to young people from all over Italy, offered in collaboration between UCEI, the Taube Center in Poland and AEPJ.
During the three-day programme, participants had the opportunity to discover the impressive Jewish heritage of the Sicilian city, as well as to receive sessions from experts and finally, to present the projects they have been working on throughout the programme.
Victor Sorenssen, director of the AEPJ, as well as Federica Pastoret, project manager of the European Routes of Jewish Heritage attended, and witnessed first-hand the success of the seminar and the programme in general. The innovative format, methodology and educational team represent a renewed opportunity to imagine the development of Jewish heritage in Italy and throughout Europe. The multidisciplinary, cross-sectoral approach has given its fruits, and we recommend to follow closely the new Jewish heritage projects that will be led by the participants of the programme: cultural itineraries, podcasts, educational programmes, walking tours, and even new cemetery tours. Projects that represent a new way of understanding Jewish heritage and its management.
We are very proud of our participation in this initiative, and would like to congratulate both the participants and the entire team that made the programme possible. It is indeed unique to be able to share visions, goals and the great capacity of Jewish heritage to have a unique social, cultural and educational impact with this pan-European programme, which undoubtedly represents a new way of imagining Jewish heritage in Europe.
