In April 2016, the Israel Jacobson Netzwerk für jüdische Kultur und Geschichte e. V. (IJN) was founded as a registered non-profit association. Regional institutions, scientific and cultural institutions as well as interested private individuals from the districts and cities of Braunschweig, Wolfsburg, Salzgitter, Gifhorn, Goslar, Helmstedt, Peine and Wolfenbüttel are committed to researching and communicating the Jewish culture and history in our region, which is rich in the past and present.
The Israel Jacobson Network sees itself as a forum in which members and interested parties regularly exchange information about their ongoing projects and initiate joint projects from their various fields of activity. The network provides impulses for topic-related cooperation involving contemporary Jewish life in the region. The IJN is open for permanent and temporary partnerships with actors from different areas. The members contribute to the network with their topic-oriented activities and cooperate with each other. The cooperation with the Leo Baeck Institute New York and the Bet Tfila - Research Centre with its partner institution at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem gives the network enormous charisma not only nationally but also internationally.
