The Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture initiated the Jewish Heritage Online Magazine (JHOM) as part of its on-going efforts to deepen and enrich Jewish culture around the world. The Foundation's support of JHOM.com is aimed at bringing the wisdom and values of the Jewish heritage to a large and broad audience globally.
The Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture, the only international body dedicated solely to advancing Jewish cultural activities, was established by Dr. Nahum Goldmann in 1965 with reparation funds from the Government of West Germany. In addition to its support of communities and institutions, the Foundation has developed innovative programs to address needs not adequately met by the Jewish community globally. These include leadership training, reaching the Jewish unaffiliated, Jewish family education, and utilization of new technologies for Jewish culture and education.
