The European Day of Jewish Culture took place on September 4 for the sixth time. This year the topic was Facing the Future - Heritage and Modernity. The Mois Hason Choir held an evening concert and performed some of their renowned Sephardic romances in Djudezmu (judeo-espanol), Jewish songs, and songs by Macedonian and foreign composers.
An exhibition entitled Life of the Jews from Bitola was launched in the Holocaust Memorial Centre in cooperation with the Museum of Bitola. The exhibition consists of photos and documents on the life of the Jews from Bitola from the records of the Institute and Museum of Bitola.
The European Day was introduced by the president of the Jewish Community, Bjanka Subotikj, who addressed the audience and emphasized the significance of the connection between tradition and modernity:
This year’s topic is Facing the Future - Heritage and Modernity. Modernity implies change and dialogue in the new European context - dialogue within society as well as dialogue within all the communities that today add to the diversity and beauty of Europe.
We kindly invite you to take a look at Life of the Jews from Bitola in the Holocaust Memorial Centre.
