Tour of Jewish Bessarabia: Today’s Moldova
Hosted By: Qesher
Today Moldova is still a home to some 15,000 – 20,000 Jews. Historically, this land was known as Bessarabia, and Jews had already settled here by the 16th century. Along the tour, you will visit some of the typical Jewish towns of Bessarabia. Walk along the streets of Kishinev, once a city with at least 50,000 Jews (more than 40% of the city’s population). Learn about Kishinev’s Synagogues, the Jewish political and intellectual leaders and everyday Jewish life. Take a look at the past and present and also discuss the future of Kishinev’s Jewish community.
