Education

The Institute operates in two main areas: education and promotion. We operate academic and scientific programmes, including the holding of international conferences, lecture cycles, courses on cultural or historical themes, seminars intended for different professional groupings (such as those working in education or tourism), Hebrew language classes, workshops and activities for families and for children of all ages. We also participate in activities organized by other entities and institutions so as to publicize the Jewish history and culture of the city of Girona.

Series of lectures

The Institute regularly collaborates with the Ferrater Mora Chair of Contemporary Thought at the University of Girona. Since 2005, we have jointly organized cycles of conferences on thought and culture related to Judaism. The conferences take place in the Institute classroom during the first five months of each year. Since 2010, they are all recorded and can be reproduced or downloaded via the links below:
