Exhibition about Repressed Medalia Family Opened in Moscow

Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center holds the Rabbinic Dynasty exhibition on the history of the Medalia family.

      It is Russia’s first exhibition dedicated to the life of the outstanding religious leader heading one of the three major confessions in the USSR who was shot down during the Great Terror.

      The exposition presents Medalia rabbis’ photos, documents and family relics preserved by their descendants that live in different countries, such as Russia, Israel, Argentina, the Republic of South Africa, and the USA nowadays.

      The history of the Medalia rabbinic dynasty cannot fit into a family saga – it reflects the dramatic destiny of the Russian Jews generation that adhered to Jewish tradition even on penalty of death. The Rabbinic Dynasty starts the project of perpetuating the memory of all the priests who were lost under the Great Terror.

      The exhibition runs till January 11, 2015.
