The Mahar conference is held every year in Chernogoriya. Each year more than 300 people participate in the conference, representing the communities of Jews of Albania, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Croatia. The conference is organized by the Montenegrin Jewish community under the patronage of the EAJC.
First of all, Mahar is a platform for acquaintance of Jews living in the Balkans and Eastern Europe. These communities are weak and sometimes feel cut off from the great Jewish world. The annual conference gives these communities a sense of belonging to the global Jewish community and strengthens them. In addition, the Mahar conference is a unique opportunity to enjoy a diverse cultural program.
