Research, Discussion, Exchange of Ideas
The Academy of the Jewish Museum Berlin calls upon research, discussion and exchange of ideas about Jewish history, current issues, and social diversity. The academy is expanding the scope of the museum activities by introducing a program about migration and diversity. This program shall serve as a platform for analysis and discussion about Germany as an immigration destination and the emerging pluralistic society.
The academy supports research in these fields with its fellowship program that allows researchers from all over the world to benefit from the reading room and the holdings of the library and the archive.
In addition to meetings and events, the academy is also hosting workshops for children, students, and teachers under its roof.
The academy is located in the Eric F. Ross building at the Fromet und Moses Mendelssohn-Platz across the street from the museum. The concept of the "Zwischenräume," developed by Daniel Libeskind, creates an architectural expansion of the current museum ensemble.
