Ukrainian Jewish Heritage Program on Nash Holos Ukrainian Roots Radio


For centuries Ukrainian Jews have played a major role in Ukrainian cultural heritage, at home and abroad. Yet their contributions have been vastly under-represented and unrecognized.

This has largely been due to outside influences with a vested interest in keeping Ukrainians and Jews in continual conflict, undermining the natural tendency of both peoples to live in peaceful (and prosperous) co-existence.

The purpose of this radio feature is to raise mutual as well as public awareness of the rich Ukrainian Jewish Heritage with a weekly broadcast produced in conjunction with Nash Holos Ukrainian Roots Radio and Jewish Heritage Museum community in Lviv.
