Cultural Summer – 20 Years of JMB!

We’re celebrating several anniversaries this year: 1,700 years of Jewish life in Germany, 350 years since the founding of the Jewish community in Berlin and – the JMB is turning 20! We’re proud and excited to invite you to a somewhat different Cultural Summer, filled with wonderful people, fascinating talks and fantastic music — in the museum garden, with plenty of fresh air and social distancing, or from the comfort of your own home with a cocktail and a livestream.

Four events, each featuring a talk & summer concert, will explore topics related to our work in the museum, the core exhibition or upcoming projects. The goal is to lift our eyes — to the present and the future. Captivating guests, familiar faces and thrilling new voices, all coming together to talk with Museum Director Hetty Berg and the curators about all facets of the Jewish here and now.

Join us in raising a glass of “Bischoff,” the house drink of the Varnhagens, either at home or in person here in the garden. Other delicacies from our HörMahl podcast about Rahel Varnhagen will be provided by eßkultur, the museum’s cafe. Also available for pre-order for enjoying at home!

The events will be streamed live on the respective event page as well as on our YouTube channel.
