The Jews of Belarus: From the Pale of Settlement to the USSR and Beyond

Hosted By: Qesher

Belarus’ Jewish story is rich, vital, traumatic, fascinating and barely spoken of. This talk will give a snapshot of the history of the Jewish people of Belarus, the legacy on the Belarusian Jewish community of today, and an insight into the building of Jewish Cultural Heritage Trail initiated by The Together Plan Charity.

This talk is live and interactive, the number of participants is limited. With your contribution to Qesher you will also be donating to the Together Plan.

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.
