Central Board for Jewish Welfare in Germany (ZWST)

The Central Board for Jewish Welfare in Germany (ZWST) is a central organization and member of the Federal Association of Voluntary Welfare Work (BAGFW). As an umbrella organization, ZWST represents Jewish communities in the framework of Jewish social work and is active throughout Germany. Civic and political education is a major field of work for ZWST. For years, it has been conducting successful projects in anti-discrimination pedagogics and antisemitism prevention. As part of the federal programme "Demokratie Leben!", intended to promote structural development of central federal institutions, the pedagogical focus of ZWST can now be expanded towards empowerment initiatives.
