Virtual Tour of Jewish St. Petersburg, Russia

October 26th @ 11:00 AM EDT

Join the BZD as we explore St. Petersburg with our tour guide, Evgenia (Jane) Kempinski. She’ll enlighten us about the city’s fascinating Jewish history, which spans three centuries and has 342 bridges. Jews immigrated to the Imperial city after Russia annexed Eastern Poland in the late 18th century. Even though the Jews of St. Petersburg never experienced pogroms, their safety and culture were negatively affected by the restrictions of the Empire, the Bolsheviks, and the Soviets.
