European Day of Jewish Culture 2012
Several events throughout Slovenia
2. 9. 2012, from 11.00
Slovenia first joined the EDJC project in 2006 when events in Ljubljana, Lendava, and Maribor were organized for the first time. Later on, organizers in Murska Sobota, Koper, Nova Gorica, and Ptuj – i.e., all the towns and cities in the area of Slovenia today that were settled by Jewish communities in different periods of time in the past – also joined the project. As part of celebrating the EDJC 2012, the exhibition on the world renowned medieval manuscript – The Sarajevo Haggadah will be opened in Maribor Synagogue. The opening of the exhibition will be accompanied by the multimedia project directed by Enver Dragulj, and performed by Branko Jordan (interpretation of the theatre piece The Soul of the Great Master/La alma del gran meshtre), Dado Dragulj and Rudi Uran (musical video), and Klarisa Jovanović and Luka Ropret (presentation of songs by Sephardic Jews).
Co-producer of the project is Public Institute Maribor 2012 – European Capital of Culture; the project is also supported by Municipality of Maribor, DEM (Dravske elektrarne Maribor), and Embassy of Israel in Vienna.
