Jewish Odessa Tour Part 2: “Star in Exile” to the “Gates of Zion”

Join the virtual tour and explore Odessa’s enormous and fascinating Jewish heritage. The two contrasting phrases – “Live like God in Odessa” and “The fires of hell burn for 7 miles around Odessa” originated among the Ashkenazi Jews about the nineteenth century city. Odessa welcomed the Jews, yet the first riot against the Jews in the Russian Empire happened here. While paradise in the eyes of some, the city was a hotbed of depravity in the eyes of others. Odessa enthusiastically embraced the Haskalah, yet later became home to Zionism.  Finally, Olga will share insights into the modern Jewish community.

Sights on the virtual live tour include:

  • Main City Synagogue (exterior)
  • Jewish street
  • Isaac Babel monument
  • Area of the Jewish riots
  • Odessa Palestine Committee building
  • Avenue of a mass killing of the Jews during Odessa’s occupation in WWII.
