The Jews of Scandinavia: A Virtual Tour of Norway and Sweden
Hosted By: Qesher
The Jewish communities in Sweden and in Norway date back to the 18th and 19th centuries respectively, when Jews were legally permitted to reside in these Christian kingdoms. Join us as we explore the beauty of these countries and talk about their brief, yet important, Jewish history. We will speak about the first Jews who settled in these lands and the growth of Jewish life in the first half of the 20th century. We will also compare the different fates of both communities during WWII. Finally, we will discuss modern-day antisemitism and views towards Israel in the Scandinavian societies today.
