"I am from a tribe which has always been nomadic in a desert the size of the world. Our countries are the oases which we leave when the source dries up, our houses are tents dressed in stone, our nationalities are the affairs of dates or boats. We are only linked together through one another, across generations, across seas, across the Babel of languages, the murmuring of a name..."
"Jewish Heritage is an integral part of European history and culture. Jewish history and culture is largely rooted in Europe and is made up of a history full of migration, persecution and precariousness, but equally of human exchanges, humanism and an abundance of mutual enrichment. However, for a long time, the Jews of Europe were considered as worn-out "leftovers" of what was once an ancient tradition full of originality"
