House of Jewish Culture YESOD

Detailed Information

ESOD is a modern building built in 2005 and over the years it has become the home of many Jewish organizations in St. Petersburg. The main goal of the ESOD was to create a citywide Jewish cultural center for people of all ages and interests. Today centers such as ESOD are located in Moscow, Odessa, Kharkov and Kiev. Seeking to bring the Jewish people back to our heritage and traditions, the Joint supports this network of Jewish community centers offering diverse cultural, educational and community programs, as well as a large number of projects aimed at reviving Jewish identity.

Two kindergartens, a spacious and modern game store, educational studios, theater performances, camps for children and bright celebrations of Jewish holidays await the youngest guests of ESOD.
