Shtetl: A Jewish Universe
Hosted By: Baltimore Zionist District
Join the Baltimore Zionist District and tour guide, Evgenia Kempinski, for our 2-part series on Shtetls.
Shtetl – A Jewish town located on the territory of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and later the Russian Pale of Settlement. Usually small and self-contained, shtetls were vibrant and full of Jewish life and tradition centers. However, these simple definitions need to explain the importance and influence of a Shtetl on Jewish life and culture.
