Ah Odessa!

Ah Odessa. Nice to see that despite the terrible civil war in Ukraine, the Jews of Odessa keep up Jewish heritage, and why not. Odessa has a special place in Russian Jewish history, great Jewish writers lived and worked there, it was an enlightened and Zionist city, a unique place, "the only large Russian city they weren't barred from in Czarist times." For more on Odessa, check out my "Klara's Journey," (Marion Street Press) and ":The Scattered Tribe:Traveling the Diaspora from Cuba to India to Tahiti & Beyond," (Globe Pequot Press).
