Jewish Heritage Tour
from €44per person
Driving tour with main Jewish sights in English
It is difficult to overestimate the contribution made by the representatives of the Jewish community to the development of the city of Kiev in the late XIX – early XX centuries. They loved this city very much, and wanted to make it modern and beautiful. Therefore, they spent a lot of money and energy for its improvement. In addition, all Kiev Jews were widely involved in charity: they built schools and hospitals for the poor, where poor people of any faith were helped free of charge. They set up canteens where they fed disadvantaged people at their own expense.

Majority of Kiev merchants of the first guild were Jews. These are well-known sugar producers – sugar kings Lazar Brodsky and his brother Lev Brodsky, Simha Lieberman, Marcus Sachs, Jonah Zaitsev and his son Markus Zaitsev, Moses Halperin, Yakov Polyakov. All these merchants contributed to creation and construction of the Kiev Polytechnic Institute, because they needed highly qualified sugar industry engineers.
