Czech Jewish Heritage Day 2021 in Pacov, Černovice, and Radenín
Dear Friends of Tikkun,
It‘s with great pleasure that I’d like to draw your attention to the rich programme of events we’ve put together to celebrate Jewish Heritage Day in Pacov and environs on 7-8 August, in cooperation with the nearby Cernovice Jewish Memorial.
For a full overview, please refer to the programme published on our website.
We hope that many of you will join us this coming weekend, and take advantage of this opportunity to meet, to learn and to remember Jewish culture, which for hundreds of years was an integral part of the region‘s history.
