Qesher

Discover, Learn, Connect


Discover

Qesher, connection in Hebrew, is a project for an unusual time, in which physical borders have become stronger, but we are more in contact than ever.

There are Jewish communities all around the globe with their own unique history, culture, places, and most of all people and stories. All of them different, but sharing so much. We would like to invite you to a virtual journey to discover some of these Jewish stories from around the world.

Therefore every Sunday we introduce a new speaker from a different region and community to give you the chance to enrich and deepen your knowledge of our shared Jewish heritage from whetever you happen to be.

All you need is a free Zoom account  and to sign up to any of our upcoming events.

Learn

At Qesher, we have an international team which has personally experienced how Jewish life is lived in Europe, South America, the US and Israel.

The feeling of belonging is there everywhere, despite the infinite particularities and differences. We want you to learn about these experiences as well.

Our aim is to include anybody who is interested in joining us. Therefore we have tried to keep our participation fees affordable for everyone. You can choose among three different admission fees according to your ability.

The more you can give, the more you will help us grow and develop this initiative. But we want everybody to feel welcome regardless.

Your contribution will also help to fund a local project, cause or organisation selected by each one of our speakers.

Connect

Qesher is all about connecting between communities, individuals, speakers and participants.

That's why the attendance to our events is limited to 25 people, in order to allow interaction between hosts and guests.

You can check our full list of upcoming events and sign up right now by browsing our program.
