On the History of the Project
Jewish Life in Frankfurt see the new article at About us


The „Hessische Kultusministerium“ supports us by delegating a teacher to the project.

Our publication “Unsere Wurzeln sind hier in Frankfurt” was sponsored by the City of Frankfurt: Dezernat für Bildung und Frauen, Stiftung Polytechnische Gesellschaft Frankfurt, Naspa-Stiftung „Initiative und Leistung“, Ernst-Ludwig-Chambré-Stiftung.

This hompage was made possible thanks to the generous help of the foundation „Erinnerung, Verantwortung und Zukunft“, Leo-Baeck-Program

We are especially grateful for the assistance and good cooperation with Hauptamt der Stadt Frankfurt, Gesellschaft für Christlich-Jüdische Zusammenarbeit Hochtaunus and Hessische Landeszentrale für politische Bildung.

We transformed the project into a registered society/charitable organization early in 2014, which was necessary to enable us to finance some ambitious projects, such as this homepage.

Everybody is welcome to support us or join our “Verein Projekt Jüdisches Leben in Frankfurt e.V., charitable organization”.
