The rich heritage Jewish community has left to Bosnia and Herzegovina gives special identity to our association.
This fact motivates us to work permanently on the preservation and promotion of Jewish culture or events that define our community.
We have committed ourselves to preserve and promote, in every way possible, the following monuments of material culture:
The Sarajevo Haggadah, Old Sephardic Cemetery in Sarajevo, The Tomb and the Pilgrimage Site of Rav Moše Danon in Stolac, Old Sephardic Synagogue, The Great Synagogue, The Ashkenazi Synagogue and all other monuments of Jewish culture
We also educate tourist guides to be able to lead the Jewish Sarajevo tour and give accurate information about the long Jewish history in B&H.
