Jewish Heritage promotes British Jewry’s architectural heritage to the general public through encouraging participation in the annual national Heritage Open Days (HoDs) and in European Jewish Heritage Day, organised by B’nai Brith, which since 2000 has become a popular annual event in the UK.  On successive Sundays every September historic synagogues all over the country open their doors to visitors. A few historic Jewish cemeteries as well as contemporary synagogues also open, and special events such as lectures, concerts, exhibitions and heritage trails are organised.

European Jewish Heritage Days

Sunday 14th and 21st September 2014

European Jewish Heritage Day (officially called 'European Day of Jewish Culture and Heritage') was launched by the Jewish philanthropic organisation B'nai Brith in Strasbourg in 1996 and in the UK in the year 2000 with assistance from the organisation that became Jewish Heritage UK in 2004. Jewish Heritage Day is normally held on the first Sunday in September, unless there is a clash with the Jewish New Year and other holidays that fall in September and/or October. In any case, the array of associated events has grown and nowl stretches over a two week period in September.
