One of the aims of the IJN actors is to take people to the authentic places of Jewish life - both from the region and beyond. In close cooperation with other partners from the region, the members offer appropriate tours for individual travellers and groups (from descendants of emigrated Jews to school classes, from culturally interested people to student excursions and groups of Jewish communities...) - of course not without views of the numerous other cultural and scenic highlights of the region. During the regular tours "On Jewish Traces...", historically significant places such as the former Jacobson School in Seesen and the former agricultural school of the Simon'schen Foundation (Tessenow House) in Steinhorst find new destinations and an appropriate function as places of information, joint learning, and discussion.
Together with our partners, we bring exhibitions on Jewish history and culture to the region, organise events such as tours on the theme "In Jewish Footsteps...", or issue publications. On our interactive map you will find over 60 buildings, sites or objects that provide an overview of Jewish life in the region between the Harz Mountains and the Heath. Since 2020, we have initiated Jewish Culture Days in the region. Since 2019, the Stolperstein initiatives of the region have come together under the umbrella of the IJN.
