Virtual tour of the rich Jewish heritage of Odessa with our guide Olga, who is safely back in the city. During our tour, we’ll see the Main City Synagogue and the Odessa Palestine committee building. We will also visit the monument to Isaac Babel, the Odessa born writer who made Jewish Odessa world famous, and talk about Lev Trotsky’s time in the city. Although focused on the 19th century, this live tour will include several places connected to the period of Odessa’s occupation in WWII. Finally, Olga will share insights into the modern Jewish community and Jewish life in Odessa today. As the world’s eyes are on Ukraine, we are glad to be able to spend time, virtually, touring the past and present of Odessa.
