Slovenian Jewish Heritage

Web portal “Slovenian Jewish Heritage” presents the entire multifaceted Jewish heritage of Slovenia. It includes synagogues, cemeteries, tombstones and their fragments, cemetery chapels, Holocaust memorials, medieval Jewish quarters, ritual objects, and manuscripts preserved in the territory of the Republic of Slovenia. The web portal “Slovenian Jewish Heritage” is a division of the Bezalel Narkiss Index of Jewish Art; integration of documentation of Slovenian Jewish heritage in the Index enables its contextualization and placement within the broader context of European and global Jewish heritage.

Web portal “Slovenian Jewish Heritage” was created in the framework of a bilateral Slovenian-Israeli research project "Digitization of the Jewish Heritage in Slovenia," conducted by the Center for Jewish Art at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the University of Maribor. The funding for the project was provided by the Israel Ministry of Science and Technology and the Slovenian Research Agency.
