The EAJC was established in the year 2000 following conferences, seminars and consultations with artists and professionals in the cultural sector at which the role of Jewish culture as a source of inspiration and renewal was discussed and articulated. The part culture and the arts play in representing Judaism to the wider world was considered equally important.
