Academy Programs

A Space for the Perspectives of Religious and Ethnic Minorities

Academy Programs

When the Academy opened in 2012, we added the Academy programs to our range of activities. In line with our Museum's mandate to engage with Jewish history and culture in Germany, the Academy programs also create space for new perspectives on other religious and ethnic minorities. In this way, we both explore the relationships between minority groups and the majority population and promote exchange and network-building among minorities.

Migration & Diversity and Jewish-Islamic Forum

The Academy programs include the Jewish-Islamic Forum and the Academy program in migration and diversity. With a multifaceted program of readings, conferences, workshops, and panel discussions, they both provide a platform for discussing highly relevant socio-political themes such as the role of immigration in Germany and the circumstances of Jews and Muslims as religious minorities in Germany.
