The next EHRI Webinar on Zoom puts the spotlight on Yerusha, a project closely related to EHRI. The Yerusha Project, a digital humanities initiative of the Rothschild Foundation Hanadiv Europe, creates an online hub of information regarding European Jewish archival heritage. A collaborative effort of European, US and Israeli academic and heritage institutions, Yerusha features over 12,000 in-depth archival descriptions held by 700 archives, libraries and museums of 27 countries. It gives researchers access to a wealth of records covering all major subjects of Jewish history. The material is continuously growing, and further thousands of descriptions will be added to the database in September. 

In the EHRI Webinar,  Director Dr. Gábor Kadar will talk about Yerusha, the challenges and achievements. Kadar is a recurrent visiting professor of the Jewish Studies Program at Central European University and former Senior Historian of the Hungarian Jewish Archives. He is the author and co-author of six monographs and numerous studies, articles and encyclopedia entries regarding various aspects of the Holocaust and the history of Jews in Hungary. He is a member of the Digital Forum Advisory Board of the European Association of Jewish Studies.
