The WJHwatch is dedicated to safeguarding the existence and preservation of Jewish Heritage sites and elements.

The sites nominated for the WJHwatch are selected by the public from the WJHpedia official sites and events list. The WJHwatch list is comprised of both tangible and intangible elements, that have been recognised as in need of urgent safeguarding. These sites and elements are at risk, despite efforts from the communities and all involved.


The WJHwatch tangible sites are Jewish heritage sites around the world that are in need of urgent safeguarding. The World Monument Fund is running projects to help restore theses sites. You can help preserve our Jewish heritage by donating to a specific project or alternatively nominating  a site off the WJH Official list to be considered for the WJHwatch.

The WJHwatch intangible elements are Jewish practices, representations, expressions, knowledge and skills that are in urgent need of safeguarding. By donating to a specific project or nominating an element form the WJHwatch list, you can help preserve our Jewish heritage.
