This Jewish Odessa tour tells the story of Odessa's Jewry since the city's founding till modern times. The “Star in Exile” for an Eastern European Jew in the 19th century. The center of the Haskalah and Zionism. In hundred years Odessa became the third largest Jewish city in the world.

The tour takes you to the temples – the Great Choral Synagogue and Shomrei Shabbos Synagogue. We follow in the footsteps of Odessa’s Zionists, including Meir Dizengoff and Ze'ev Jabotinsky. We see the location of Odessa’s Palestine Committee. We explore some of the darkest sides of Odessa’s Jewish history – pogroms and Holocaust.
