Online tour on January 9th
Virtual Tour Details
Shtetl – Jewish market town located on the territory of Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and later Russian Pale of Settlement.
Usually small and self-contained, shtetls were vibrant centers of Jewish life and tradition.
These simple definitions do not explain the importance and the influence of a Shtetl on the Jewish life and culture.
We meet on Zoom to find our own answers to many questions about the phenomenon of a Shtetl:
  • What was so unique about the Shtetl?
  • Why do some researches call it as "Jewish Atlantis"?
  • What made the life of Jewish Community in the shtetl so special?
  • What makes a town a shtetl?
  • How did the shtetl look like and who actually lived there? Were there any non-Jews in the shtetl?
In addition, we will discuss food, traditions, language, believes, jobs, community structure and other important elements of the shtetl's everyday life.
