In September, the Bulgarian Jewish community celebrated the 110th anniversary of the building of the Sofia Synagogue. Among the many local and foreign dignitaries attending the event was WJC president Ronald Lauder. While in Sofia, Mr. Lauder also inaugurated Bulgaria’s first private Jewish school in recent history. Follow this link for some images from the school opening.
The Sofia synagogue is a central part of our Sofia Jewish tour and one of the highlights of our Jewish heritage tour of Bulgaria, North Macedonia, and Greece.
