Romania and Bulgaria
More information: Rebecca Neuwirth, Director of JDC Ambassadors, at email@example.com
Meet Jews who are reclaiming and strengthening their Jewish identity and traditions, in spite of economic hardship.
Hear from Jewish community leaders about the struggles and successes in the Balkans today. Visit capitals Bucharest and Sofia and participate in Jewish activities with community members.
Romania, once home to thriving Jewish life, saw mass murders during the Holocaust and emigration to Israel following. Bulgaria’s Jewish community was largely spared during World War II. Both communities, though small, are proud of their heritage, and eager to rebuild life today. Economic pressures in the region are intense, and JDC is offering life saving support.
