To e-mail us:
Ukraine was once home to a strong Jewish cultural tradition, most of which
was destroyed as a result of World War II. Many communities in Western
Ukraine were once more than 70% Jewish, but now all that remains are a
handful of Jewish graveyards, synagogues and inhabitants, who keep these
traditions alive. The following are only some of the many Jewish heritage
sites you may want to explore.
