Ten Days of Jewish Culture from Moscow to Berlin

07 to 17 November 2019

21 events in 11 Berlin locations. Artists from Russia, Germany, Israel and the USA invite you to a program of concerts, readings and exhibitions on the occasion of the 32nd Cultural Festival of the Jewish Community of Berlin. The programme ranges from music, literature, humour, stories and history, lectures and exhibitions to family celebrations and provides a great insight into the diversity of Jewish culture.

A commemoration ceremony is held to commemorate 9 November 1938.
Location: Jewish Community Centre Fasanenstraße, Fasanenstraße 79-80, 10623 Berlin, Germany
Time: FR 08.11.2019 (start 14:00 | admission 13:00)

On the occasion of the anniversary of the pogrom night on November 9, 1938, the Governing Mayor of Berlin, Michael Müller, the Chairman of the Jewish Community of Berlin, Dr. Gideon Joffe, Rabbi Jonah Sievers and Cantor Isidoro Abramowicz commemorate the crimes of the Nazi regime.
The musical program will be accompanied by members of the string quartet of the Berlin-Sinfonietta, the actress Nadine Schori will read selected texts.
From 9:00 to 16:00, the names of the 55,969 murdered Berlin Jews will be read from the Berlin Memorial Book in front of the Gemeindehaus.

The 9th of November is also illuminated from another side. After the fall of the Berlin Wall on 9 November 1989, many people from the CIS countries immigrated to Germany. As a result, the number of Jewish community members in Germany tripled. One focus of the Jewish Cultural Days in Berlin in 2019 will therefore be Russian-Jewish culture.
