New Frontiers for Jewish Digital Heritage

Tuesday 26 January 2021, from 15:00 to 18:00 CET
on Zoom

(9:00 AM New York; 16:00 PM Jerusalem)

I am glad to share the announcement for the concluding event of the project Judaica Europeana II. The announcement is available at and copied below.

Among the achievements to be presented at the event:

  • A state of the art aggregation platform dedicated to Jewish digital content.
  • Enriched metadata so that entities (persons, places, events etc) are linked to contextualizing resources (vocabularies). It should be highlighted among them the YIVO Encyclopedia of Jews in Eastern Europe (linked data version here).
  • More than 700,000 Jewish digital heritage objects uploaded to Europeana.
  • Content provided by the leading Cultural Heritage institutions in the Jewish world. The providers are partners of the Judaica Europeana consortium established at the conclusion of Judaica Europeana I – see here.
  • Contents ready for uploading to the Digital Public Library of America as soon as the hurdle posed by DPLA required annual fee of 10,000 USD is overcome.

Best regards,

Concluding Event of Judaica Europeana 2.0



Tuesday 26 January 2021, from 15:00 to 18:00 CET On Zoom


New Frontiers for Jewish Digital Heritage is the concluding event of Judaica Europeana 2.0 project (supported by the European Commission under the CEF programme), organised by the Jewish Heritage Network and Michael Culture.
The event is intended for a broad audience of Jewish heritage professionals and will consist of three sessions, namely on content aggregation, storytelling tools, and funding and sustainability, to report on the achievements of the project, demonstrate the developed services, content aggregated to Europeana and discuss in a wide context how these and similar tools can support Jewish museums and other heritage organisations in fulfilling their mission. It will be concluded by an open discussion on the sustainability of digital approaches, with the participation of funders.
