Hide Profile

The Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture, the only international body dedicated solely to advancing Jewish cultural activities, was established by Dr. Nahum Goldmann in 1965 with reparation funds from the Government of West Germany. More than 40 organizations are represented in the Foundation. The Foundation awards scholarships and fellowships to scholars, writers, artists, rabbis, educators and communal workers to replace the cultural elite annihilated in Europe. Funds are provided to institutions, such as universities and academic bodies, for research and publication. The Foundation also gives support to European Jewish communities to help them reconstruct the cultural life destroyed during the Holocaust
