Odessa Jewish Heritage

Odessa Jewish Heritage: the Jewish hospital – one of the Jewish artifacts, which survived the pogroms, revolution, the Civil war, WW2 and the Soviet period. Built by the Jewish community in 1860s-1870s on the funds, which came from the interest on the special bank deposit and kosher butcher’s tax, the Jewish hospital provided medical services to the Odessa’s Jewry as well as all other people who needed treatment. Around 20000 people could come see the doctor there annually.
