The Chernivtsi Museum of the History and Culture of Bukovinian Jews was opened in 2008. It is envisaged as a monument to the Bukovinian Jewry – a subethnic group, which formed in Bukovina in the late 18th – early 20th centuries and left unique historical-cultural heritage here.
The museum’s mission is to preserve this heritage and make it more widely known by means of
- preserving the permanent exhibition;
- staging temporary exhibitions;
- implementing scientific, educational and cultural projects;
- creating communicative network with the Jews who once lived in Bukovina and their descendants, who live today around the world.
