Simon Dubnow Institute for Jewish History and Culture in Leipzig admitted to the Leibniz Association

11/12/2017

Last Thursday, November 20, 2017, the Simon Dubnow Institute for Jewish History and Culture in Leipzig was admitted to the Leibniz Association.

The Dubnow Institute counts about 25 researchers and is affiliated to the Leipzig University. Founded by the Saxon State after the Reunification of Germany, the Institute with its pan-European perspective is devoted to the investigation of Jewish History and Culture from the Early Modern Era down to the present.

For a decade and a half the Institute was headed by Prof. Dan Diner while its current director is Prof. Yfaat Weiss, member of the Department for the History of the Jewish People and Contemporary Jewry.

The Leibniz Association is one of the most prestigious and influential among the research organizations in Germany and connects 91 institutions in various fields of science. The acceptance of the Dubnow Institute (future name: Leibniz-Institute for Jewish History and Culture – Simon Dubnow) further strengthens the humanities in the Leibniz Association and complements their research in the field of Jewish history and culture.

"The joint appointment of its director, Yfaat Weiss, with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is special and adds profoundly to our international relations and efforts," noted Prof. Matthias Kleiner, President of the Leibniz Association.
