“At a time when Germany boasts the fastest growing Jewish community in the world, Jewish Voice from Germany focuses on the long, complex, and sensitive connection between the country and its Jewish citizens who were “Germans” until the Nuremberg Laws of 1935 turned them into “Jews.”  Today, there is a vibrant revival of Jewish life, diversity of Jewish opinion, and revitalization of an indissoluble link between Germany and Jews around the world.  Rafael Seligmann captures the excitement, the pride, and the concerns of a new generation in the pages of Jewish Voice from Germany, which he founded nearly one year ago.

Please join Leo Baeck Institute for the American debut of this very important journalistic initiative that has received widespread acclaim from diplomats, policymakers, historians, and readers around the world.  German Consul General in New York Busso von Alvensleben will also make remarks.
