From November 2014 to April 2015, citizens of Vilnius and Kaunas in Lithuania, Katowice and Gdańk in Poland, Alba Iulia in Romania and Košice in Slovakia, had chance to discover the Jewish culture and tradition by taking part in a day-long event Being a Jew. It was an opportunity to visit a synagogue, learn a song in Yiddish language, listen to Jewish music, taste the kosher food and to honour victims of the Holocaust in the end of the day.
The goal of the project Being a Jew is to spread knowledge about the Jewish traditions and thus fight anti-Semitism which is still alive throughout Europe. Memory, reflection, understanding and discussion are vital for building an open-minded and tolerant attitude of appreciation for cultural diversity of contemporary Europe.
