Frost-Resistant Jews of Siberia, Russia’s Promised Land
Hosted By: Qesher
Siberia is always bitterly cold, and dangerous, brown bears walk its streets – as the popular stereotype says. But is it really so? In this talk we’ll learn about life on this vast territory during the last 400 years. Jews of the Pale of Settlement tried to escape to America, to Palestine – but some of them chose a different route and went to Siberia. Others were forced to go there. We’ll explore when and how Jews got to Siberia, where they settled and what they did while the country and the world went through major changes time and again.
