Jewish Odessa Tour Part 5. A Stroll Along Bazarnaya Street Continues
Fri, 3 Dec 1:15 PM - Ukraine
Let’s continue our live walk along Bazarnaya street. Named after one of the oldest city bazars (yes, markets are called bazars in Odessa), the street became the second Jewish quarter and is soaked with Jewish history. Lots of early Jewish settlers were artisans of various sorts: coppersmiths, glasscutters, watchmakers. They made weight weights and tools for different measurements. They had stalls in one of the city’s first markets, called the Free Bazar. They settled near the market, making the area the second Jewish quarter in the city’s early days. Later in the eighteen hundreds Bazarnaya street became home to the Zionists’ publishing house “Kadima” and to the Jewish intellectuals, including Moshe Leib Lilienblum and Josef Gedalja Klausner. Traditions carry on and today this street is the address of the Odessa’s Progressive Jewish community, established in 1998. Join this live-stream walk along old Bazarnaya street, located on the outskirts of the city center to continue exploring Odessa’s fascinating Jewish history.
