Shtetl: A Virtual Tour of the Once Jewish Towns of Eastern Europe

Hosted By: Qesher

Visit selected shtetls from all ends of Eastern Europe – Poland, Lithuania, Ukraine, Belarus. Walk down their old streets, look at the Jewish homes, and see how general shtetl features are reflected in these particular towns. Learn about the relations between Jews and Christians, as well as the political and social life in these shtetls. See how shtetl life changed over the centuries. Combining old and new photographs and people’s memoirs, travel through time to imagine and understand the life of our ancestors.

The talk can be attended independently from the first one.

Host

Qesher

There are Jewish communities all around the globe with their own unique history, culture, places, and most of all, people and stories. All of them different, but sharing so much. The aim of Qesher is to connect these different Jewish traditions, not just to know of each other, but to learn about each other. We believe that there is great value in creating a deeper understanding within the Jewish world and exploring Jewish experiences and identities in all their diversity.
