Press reviews – publications about the LJGH:

Please, read Rosh Hashana 5780 greetings of the Federal Chancellor Miss Dr. Angela Merkel

At the beginning of this year, an article about the LJGH e.V. written by Dr. Moshe Navon with preface of Barbara Seibert s.A. appeared in the journal of the Elbinstitut "The Contribution - The Glocal Magazine".  Unfortunately our dear friend and supporter, the publisher of the magazine, Mrs. Seibert, died this year and her Elbinstitut was closed. With her and the Elbinstitut our initial project - to organize an exhibition about the history of liberal Judaism in Hamburg - was interrupted. But a week before her sudden death, Mrs. Seibert managed to distribute this magazine in the German Bundestag in Berlin to all MPs. She wanted to help us all. It was and remains a symbol of conscience in Hamburg! Click here for her contribution to the LJGH e.V.
