ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Our two AudioWalks take you on a journey through Jewish Chernivtsi and Chişinău and allow you to discover many of the cities’ nearly forgotten sites of Jewish life.

Use our multimedia maps, and explore the family pictures, archival material, and personal stories of 21 Jewish Holocaust survivors to get a unique insight into the rich Jewish heritage of these two European cities.

Element 340
Sadovs'koho St, 11

The former praying house of the Korn family, on Sadovskoho Street 11, today houses the Main Synagogue of Bukovyna. Aside from the Bei Tfilah Benyamin synagogue, this is currently the only active synagogue in Chernivtsi.

The renovated small synagogue is designed in neo-Romantic style and is used by the Orthodox Chassidic Jewish community for religious services. You can find a kosher restaurant on the lower floor.
