Das Wichtigste zur „Koscheren Melange“, dem Blog des Österreichischen Jüdischen Museums in Eisenstadt

Why and what we blog?

The blog "Kosher Melange" complements the Online offer our museum. Unlike our (static) Website it offers the possibility for active participation (comments, picture of the week, the school offers etc.).

The blog portrays Judaism as a religious and culturally diverse size in the past and present; Austrian, especially the Burgenland (Western Hungary) Judaism experiencing this special consideration, including in the form of a digital processing of the Jewish cemeteries of Burgenland.

The blog is not directed exclusively at a specialist audience (though professional Jargon z.T. will not be avoided), but wants to give all interested parties a better insight into the daily work of our museum.
As subsidized by the public institution we have also a concern to be transparent to the public and make them look behind the scenes museum.

Who blogs?

The blog rises like the Website an idea and initiative of employees and is also designed by this. There are again no extra budget, that is: First comes the work - and if there is time, a blog post. but we try, of course, in a relaxed regularity Posts online deliver.

, Chronic Israel traveler who listens more willingly Dylan als Klesmer, betritt das Museum prinzipiell nicht ohne Dosenkaffee, cineastisch von A(lles über meine Mutter) bis Z(eugin der Anklage), versitzt seine freie Zeit gerne auf Stadtplätzen (vom Kikar haChurva bis zum Campo de‘ Fiori) …
