Rothschild Foundation Hanadiv Europe – Grants Programmes open for applications

By AEJM / Robbie Schweiger on

The Rothschild Foundation Hanadiv Europe welcomes applications for the Spring grant round in all of its  grants programmes:   Archives and Libraries Grants Programme is open for applications Repositories across the breadth of Europe tell the story of the Jewish presence on this continent, from the Medieval period all the way up to the present day.

Some of these borders are permeable and others fatal, some are visible and others reinforced by cultural codes, language tests, or biometric methods. Borders decide about “identity” and “otherness”, belonging and exclusion, life and death. “The Gileadites captured the fords of the Jordan opposite Ephraim. And it happened when any of the fugitives of Ephraim said, “Let me cross over,” the men of Gilead would say to him, “Are you an Ephraimite?” If he said, “No,” then they would say to him, “Say now, ‘Shibboleth.’” But he said, “Sibboleth,” for he could not pronounce it correctly. Then they seized him and slew him at the fords of the Jordan. Thus there fell at that time 42,000 of Ephraim.“ (Book of Judges 12:5,6) Starting from the… | Read more »
