The purpose of this project is to shed light on the Danish Jews of Copenhagen, a small group that has remained intact despite facing obstacles. This project examines the future of Judaism in Denmark through personal testimony from nearly 11 members of the community aged 14 to 78. By analyzing the social, political and religious dimensions of this community, “What is the future of Judaism in Denmark?” is an open dialogue that allows Jewish Danes to speculate about the future of their community. The intended audience of this project is those who are not familiar with the Danish Jewish community, as well as those who are familiar but know little about the current state of affairs.
