The AEPJ General Assembly 2022 kicked off yesterday in Hannover, Germany. The various representatives of AEPJ member institutions will spend four days together in the capital of Lower Saxony, with a programme combining workshops, working meetings and study visits. Global Partnership Hannover acts as host of the Assembly, and is in fact the first German institution to be part of the Association. The plenary meeting of the Assembly will take place this Sunday morning.
Last night, at the State Museum of Lower Saxony, the welcome reception took place. The master of ceremonies was Anke Biedenkapp, CEO of Global Partnership Hannover. François Moyse, President of the AEPJ, Sylvia Löhrmann, Secretary General of Jüdisches Leben In Deutschland and Petra Rudszuck, Vicepresident of Hannover Region, spoke and addressed the event.
The reception was followed by a presentation by Dr. Claudia Andraschke of the Tate Museum of Lower Saxony on the Jewish artists in the Museum’s collection. Elena Ilinskaya, first violin of the Dortmund Theatre, closed the evening.
