Help Root Out anti-Semitism and reconnect
What seemed impossible sixty years ago
following the Shoah is now a reality – An active Jewish Community is
reemerging in Germany.
The country’s Jewish population, which is
surpassing 200,000, is the most rapidly increasing in the world. This
growth has been bolstered by the immigration of Russian and Eastern European
Jews but also Jewish Americans were eager to return to their geographic
These talented new arrivals, together with an
established Jewish community that remained after the war, are helping to
shape life, culture, and society in contemporary Germany. Nonetheless, most
Germans are unaware of the resurgence of Jewish life and uninformed about
Judaism’s deep religious and cultural heritage and its contribution to
German and world civilization.

Jews first settled in Germany during the
period of the Roman empire. Though their status underwent multiple
transformations and they experienced periods of religious and civic
restrictions, the Jewish community managed to flourish and regenerate in
times of tolerance. Jewish thinkers profoundly influenced the general
development of philoshophy and modern scolarship. According to Jewish
teaching, the German-Jewish mingling was purposeful and benefitted humanity
as a whole. German Jews merged elements of German and Jewish culture into a
unique new one, pervading all aspects of German cultural and intellectual
life. This process abrubptly halted with the rise of Nazi Germany and the
Holocaust -- a horrible chapter which inevitably engendered a long term
schism in German-Jewish relations.
