This talk helps us create an image of a Shtetl - its life, structure, people, traditions and more. We will try to understand the uniqueness of the Shtetl in our history and its influence on our Jewish identity.
I invite you to visit the key cities of Croatia - Zagreb, Dubrovnik, Split and learn their Jewish history.
Welcome to Kiev - the capital of Ukraine - once a Jewish metropolis.
Here's what people say:
  • Dear Jane,
    You did an amazingly good job yesterday!!! It was very very interesting, even after having been to the Hermitage on two different tours, once many years ago on a music trip, and then, of course, with your guiding with the JHS. Not only did you show us the beauty that is the Hermitage, you gave a very good insight in the process of restoration. As a volunteer at the Israel Museum I have had the privilege to attend lectures on the subject, and I have to compliment you on a job very well done!

  • Thank you for organizing this wonderful experience. Jane was fantastic and shared such specific and educational information for each piece of art which made it very meaningful for me. I very much look forward to further lectures with her. This virtual tour had that extraordinary visual benefit that no people were present to interrupt the beauty of each room we entered. It was fantastic.

  • This was one of the most wonderful, extraordinary presentations (all 3 days) I have ever watched! Evgenia's vast knowledge, her clear, informative, most pleasant and enthusiastic way of presenting, the wonderful photos and all the visual materials she used which so helped with my understanding, made this a truly outstanding experience! I so look forward to any future presentations she may do.
