Objectives

The Foundation was established with the objective of contributing to the preservation and development of Jewish culture in the Czech Republic. For this purpose it supports the religious, cultural, educational and publication work of Jewish communities operating in the Czech Republic within the Federation of Jewish Communities in the Czech Republic.


Projects supported by the Foundation

a) preservation and renovation (mainly restoration, conservation and cleaning) of objects of cultural value which constitute part of the holdings of the Jewish Museum in Prague, and which are used by, or are to be loaned to, Jewish communities on the basis of agreements with the Jewish Museum in Prague;

b) arrangement and creation of technical conditions for cultural, instructional and educational activities, particularly exhibitions (permanent and temporary), lectures and seminars whose aim is to familiarise the public with the history and culture of the Jewish Diaspora in the Czech Republic and which are held by Jewish communities in association with the Jewish Museum in Prague;

c) publications – exhibition catalogues, informational and educational materials and other printed matter directly related to the activities of Jewish communities mentioned above.

Although financial support is earmarked mainly for Jewish communities operating within the Federation of Jewish Communities in the Czech Republic, the Foundation intends to contribute to the preservation and development of Jewish culture throughout the Czech Republic. For this reason, the Foundation also, in individual cases, provides financial contributions to other projects whose aim is to preserve, renovate and maintain objects of cultural value which, although not part of the holdings of the Jewish Museum in Prague, do constitute significant examples of a shared Jewish culture in the Czech Republic.
