Description:

This program will share the Jewish history in the region known today as the Republic of North Macedonia from the time of the Roman Empire until the present time. Information being shared is from her 2018 Jewish Heritage trip to Bulgaria, Northern Macedonia, and Northern Greece and subsequent research that the trip sparked.  She also wanted to point out that she has no genealogical connection to the area.
