Sunday Brunch with Mendelssohn

Breakfast with Guided Tour Through the Exhibition (in German)

Coming together and sharing food while discussing God and the world – people were already enjoying this back in the 18th century. Some topics occupy us now as much they did then:

What role does the degree of integration play in decisions on the right to remain? Who determines who can live where?

In short, it's about questions of social coexistence. These questions were fundamental to Moses Mendelssohn, who was a Jew in Prussia, and he exchanged his views on them both with friends and those of differing opinions, via letters, publications and in conversation.
