We explore the Jewish Balkans - Serbia and Romania


The Jewish Heritage of Serbia and Romania
With Dr. Joseph Benatov
How did a 19th-century Serbian Sephardic rabbi influence Theodor Herzl’s philosophy of Zionism? What are the Neolog and Status Quo Ante strands in Judaism, and why were they so prevalent in both Romania and Serbia? Our lecture will cover these and many other highlights of Serbian and Romanian Jewish history. Learn about the unique Maramures region of northwestern Romania, the birthplace of both Elie Wiesel and the Satmar Hasidic group. Our visual travel through the Jewish heritage of Serbia and Romania will take us through the bustling streets of Belgrade and Bucharest, scenic Transylvania, the magnificent newly restored Subotica synagogue, the Novi Sad Temple, and much more.
