This time we will travel through the distance and time visiting two countries at once - Israel and Russian Empire.
I will take you to the well-known streets in the heart of Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa and other cities to discuss the origin of their names.
Trumpeldor, Arlazorov, Sokolov, Gruzenberg, Hankin….. you find these names in almost every city in Israel, but have you ever thought why they are called this way?
Who were these people the streets are named after? Where did they come from? What is so very special about them?
We will be carried to the Russian Empire to look at their birthplaces – small traditional shtetls and big cities. We will speak about their lives and ideas, about the atmosphere that surrounded and influenced them.
Poets, writers, artists, political leaders, kibbutz pioneers, lawyers and more.
Great life stories of great Russian Jews!
