Jewish Identity Project

My journey abroad culminated in the village of Shepetovka, Ukraine, where I searched for my roots. In doing so, I found a connection to my heritage and religion that I never expected, but that was inspiring. Read about it in this article in English or Russian.

I found that my future became clearer as I better understood my past. Whatever your heritage or religion, I believe this message is important and can help all of us better understand who we are and where we are headed.

Directly related to my experience is this short film, Keep and Remember, by Howard Wolk and Seth Bernstein. I found it insightful, compelling, and inspiring. The content is unique and gives the viewer a clear understanding of the challenges Jews face in Eastern Europe. Watch the trailer or order a copy here.
