If you click on their news tab, https://www.foundationforjewishheritage.com/news-hub.html there is information on the former Merthyr Tydfil synagogue in Wales (see below); coverage of their Iraq Syria Jewish heritage mapping project; mapping of the endangered Jewish heritage of Iraq and Syria; the project to save the historic and remarkable 'Soldiers Synagogue' in Tomsk in Siberia; supporting local efforts to save the remains of the New Israelite Temple in Hamburg; Moreshet in Wroclaw and more.

 

The most recent is their securing funding for preserving an re-purposing the former Merthyr Tydfil synagogue in Wales  see: https://www.foundationforjewishheritage.com/news-merthyr2.html
