This project was established in December 1987, following a donation from Mr. Avram Goldstein-Goren z”l, with the aim of initiating and promoting research on the heritage of Jews in Romania.

To date, more than twenty books have been published based on research conducted under the auspices of this project.

One of the characteristics of the Jewish community in Romania is that it serves as a bridge between Jewish communities of Eastern and Western Europe, as well as between Sephardi and Ashkenazi Jews.

The goal of the research was to illuminate the special character of the Jewish community in Romania and the social-cultural processes that shaped it.
