Yiddishkeit Reloaded – a Project of the Bet Kneszet Heichal Jehuda
The Robert Deutsch Memorial Foundation of the Bet Kneszet Heichal Jehuda, also known as the Bethlen Square Synagogue community, pursues the legacy of its beloved late rabbi by reviving and spreading traditional Jewish values and customs, Yiddishkeit.
Judaism is not only about religious revelations and services. It also focuses on daily life, the customs of the weekdays and the holidays we cherish, known as Yiddishkeit. For centuries, the generations passed down Yiddishkeit to their children, watchfully adapting it to times and locations. The Holocaust and the following decades of political rule, which was hostile to every tradition, cruelly broke this process.
This project wishes to introduce and endear traditional values, customs, tastes, and spirits long forgotten in many Jewish homes.
