This year, AgudathIsrael in Moldova in the frames of EDJC invites to a special place of Vadul-Rashkov, one of the most picturesque settlements on the Dniester River bank, 100 km from Chisinau. For about 150 years it was a typical Jewish shtettle until the tragedy of the Holocaust when Jews partly were exterminated; partly escaped to other regions.

Vadul-Rashkov is the place of birth of Yehiel Shraibmna, on of the most famous writer in Yiddish from Moldova, His monument is one of the main points of the visit.

However, in partnership with the Ministry of Culture of Moldova and the Museum of Jewish History, we decided to suggest a wider menu of an Open Air concert of traditional klezmer music and Israeli street and Bessarabian cuisine dishes.

During the two-hour way from Chisinau, our guide will also tell a lot of interesting about the Jewish history of the country memorizing the most important places, dates, and names.

Creating Memories : Heritage Open Day

Members of the public are invited to visit the Milton Keynes and District Reform Synagogue in Giffard Park for a Heritage Open Day event on 10 September, 2023. There will be tours of the synagogue, a chance to view our Torah Scrolls (sacred scrolls), a multi-media exhibition and light refreshments.

The Jewish community in Milton Keynes is nearly 50 years old. Our synagogue building is over 20 years old. Our community comes from a wide geographic area stretching from Northamptonshire to Bedfordshire. We also come from surprisingly varied ethnic origins. Besides the common factor of being Jewish, we are also European, Middle Eastern, North American and South African in origin, bringing together our different Jewish traditions.

This event is also part of the Milton Keynes Heritage Open Days, the theme of which is “Creativity”.

Szenwic. The story of a family

The exhibition about the Szenwic family will present the fate of one of the Jewish families associated with Płock.
The Szenwic family was associated with Płock from the beginning of the 19th century, when the spice merchant Jakub Lewin Szenwic settled here. His sense of doing business made him join the group of wealthy Jewish merchants of the city of Płock in a short time. An important area of his activity was charity and involvement in the life of the Jewish community of Płock. He was elected a member of the synagogue supervisory board several times, and in 1834 he became a member of the Committee of the Jewish Hospital of the Płock Province, whose task was to establish a hospital for Jewish patients in Płock.
