Shtetl Part 1: A Jewish Universe
Hosted By: Qesher
A shtetl is often defined as a small self-contained Jewish market town, full of Jewish life and tradition. But a simple definition does not explain its importance and influence on Jewish life and culture. This talk will help you find answers to many questions about the phenomenon of a shtetl like: What was so unique about the shtetl? What made the life of the Jewish community in the shtetl so special? What did the shtetl look like and who actually lived there? Were there any non-Jews in the shtetl? In addition, learn about food, traditions, language, beliefs, jobs, community and other important elements of the shtetl’s everyday life.
