Jewish Odessa Tour: From the City of Dreams to the Gates to Zion

Hosted By: Baltimore Zionist District

Join the BZD and tour guide Olga, owner, and Odessa Walks, for this tour to explore the phenomenon of Jewish Odessa. Founded in 1794 on the Black Sea coastline, which at that time belonged to the Russian Empire, Odessa became the third-largest Jewish city in the world in the early 1900s. So what attracted Jews from different parts of Eastern and Central Europe to this Black Sea city and port? Who were the early Jewish settlers? Why did Odessa become called the “star in exile” by a Russian Jew?
