The life of Jewish community in Russia has long and colourful history which has left its traces in multiple aspects of life in Russian Empire, USSR and modern Russian Federation. The Jewish diaspora of Russia used to be the largest one in the world so its members significantly contributed to Russian culture and science.

You will see hundreds of genuine photos, household items, religious and everyday life objects.
