It took decades to reestablish Romania’s Jewish communities after they were nearly destroyed by Nazi persecution and Communist oppression. Today, Romania’s Jews are not only reclaiming their past, but also, with JDC’s help, building a vibrant future. Journey with JDC Ambassadors this summer to witness Romania’s vibrant Jewish revival at the opening ceremonies of the 20th annual Bereshit Festival – the country’s largest Jewish communal event. Together, we will continue on to visit JDC-supported Jewish communities in the countryside, passing through National Parks and the Carpathian Mountains and exploring the region’s deep Jewish roots.
