Tasks and Goals
The research interests of MMZ focus on the history, religion and culture of the Jews and Judaism in the countries of Europe from the early modern period to the present. Our focus also includes the history and current state of Israel today, the sociology of Judaism, antisemitism and right-wing radicalism, and educational/didactical tasks.
The Moses Mendelssohn Center for European Jewish Studies (MMZ) was founded in 1992 - the 50th anniversary of the infamous Wannsee Conference and the 500th year of the expulsion of the Jews from Spain
The Moses Mendelssohn Center cooperates with academic organizations worldwide.
