Moldova has a very rich Jewish history and heritage. About 200 cities, towns and villages (shtetls, colonies, târgs) had Jewish population: from a few families to 50,000 people and more than 200,000 in total, prior to WW2. Moldova once had more than 300 synagogues, numerous Jewish cemeteries, schools, shops, baths, factories, windmills and watermills, private houses, and roads- most of this heritage was destroyed and demolished. Jewish Heritage Moldova are thoroughly mapping each existing, rededicated, neglected, ruined building, and are happy to share our knowledge, and to do it with love.
