Widely Scattered, Closely Linked: The Daily Life of Central European Jewry, 1600 to 1948

This exhibit looks at the daily life of Jews across the expanse of Central Europe, from Alsace-Lorraine in the West to the mountains of the Bukovina in the East. There were regional borders to cross and taxes to pay; there were geographical variations in recreational activities, in apprenticeship options, and in community activities.

But the essential Jewish values of family, education and worship transcended territories and centuries, making even widely scattered populations closely linked.
