The Jewish Heritage of Serbia and Romania

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?

This 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 investigation of the Jewish heritage of Serbia and Romania will focus on the Jewish communities of Transylvania, Subotica, Novi Sad, and much more.
