A Virtual Tour of Jewish Berlin: From the Early Settlers to its Heyday

Hosted By: The Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy (LESJC)

Who were the first Jewish settlers in Berlin and when was the community established? What made the Jews of Berlin different? Learn about the Jewish Reform movement during this NEW virtual presentation on Zoom that explores the story of the Berliner Jewish community.

Virtually stroll around Berlin’s oldest neighborhood where the first Jews settled, and visit the City Center that was once dominated by the city’s Jews. You’ll go to the oldest Jewish cemetery and marvel at the New Berlin Synagogue. Walking in the footsteps of the Jewish intellectuals, merchants and bankers you’ll uncover the Golden Age of the Berlin’s Jewry. Your guide on this adventure is Olga Bokhonovskaya, a native of Odessa in the Ukraine. She will share with you exciting stories of the Jewish elite who played important roles in the economics and social life of the city.
