WHAT WE DO - Human Rights

Transnational project of workshops and cultural events
Participating countries: Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia

On a bridge, we may walk in opposite directions
and yet, we are walking towards each other...

This project is a manifesto against all forms of intolerance, racial discrimination, anti-Semitism. The workshops ( high level debates on issues such as intolerance, discrimination, anti-Semitism) and the cultural events (free of charge for the general public), are designed to disseminate knowledge about the Jewish contribution to the cultural development of that region. Knowledge about your neighbour's culture promotes understanding and mutual respect; it creates Bridges of Tolerance.
