Join us for an overview of the rich history of Jewish presence in Serbia and Croatia, two Balkan countries which were part of ex-Yugoslavia.

Learn about the Sephardic and Ashkenazi communities of Dubrovnik, Split, and Zagreb (Croatia). Travel through the Jewish heritage of Belgrade and visit the magnificent newly restored Subotica synagogue and the Novi Sad Temple (Serbia).

In addition, you will have the opportunity to embark on a scenic virtual tour of the region’s spectacular sights. Our journey will make stops on the Adriatic coast, national parks, and the bustling streets of the capital cities of Zagreb and Belgrade.
