International Conference “Aleph-Bet. Zionism” Is to Be Held in Kyiv on March 15
The very word “Zionism” still evokes fear, fear, distrust in many people born in the Soviet Union, and most of those born after the collapse of the Union and the upheavals do not know the true meaning of the concept and the depth of the historical events associated with it.
The Jewish community of Ukraine is holding such elections for the second time, and is the second-largest community in the world after the US, where democratic elections are held for delegates, not the distribution of mandates.
