The Jews of Galicia (Western Ukraine): A Virtual Tour of Lviv and Brody

Hosted By: Qesher

Lviv is a city that changed hands many times: from Russia to Poland, from Poland to Austria, then back to Poland, then to USSR and finally to independent Ukraine. Jews settled here as early as the 13th century. In the best times, there were about 100 synagogues and Jewish religious, business and intellectual life flourished here over the centuries. Brody – today, a small and unknown town. In the past – one of the most important Jewish centers in Europe. Travel around Galicia and discuss the uniqueness of its Jewish history.

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.
