Year of Celebration 2021
JEWISH LIFE IN GERMANY
ACCORDING TO VERIFIABLE RECORDS, 2021 MARKS 1700 YEARS THAT JEWS HAVE LIVED IN WHAT IS NOW THE MODERN GERMAN STATE.
In light of this momentous occasion, public figures and important institutions have come together under the leadership of a society founded particularly for the purpose of celebrating this significant anniversary.
Entitled #2021JLID – Jüdisches Leben in Deutschland (English: Jewish Life in Germany), some one thousand events will be held across Germany, including concerts, exhibitions, music, a podcast, video projects, theater, films, and more.
The goal of this Year of Celebration is to highlight Jewish life in Germany, engage the broader community and counter the rise of antisemitism.
