The Jewish Triangle: Revival Movements in Central Europe
Daniel Monterescu / Hungary/Israel
The end of the second millennium saw the emergence of a dazzling range of cultural initiatives, institutional modalities and individual practices grouped together under the label "Jewish Revival." This session examines how Jewish communities in different cities across Central and Eastern Europe are redefining their identities and institutions as part of the European movement of Jewish revival.
