Kiev Pechersk Lavra

City of a Thousand Golden Domes

Known for its large number of glittering golden church domes, Kiev boasts not only an unmistakable skyline, but also a history that dates back more than a millennium. Located on the River Dnieper at the commercial crossroads of Western Europe and the Orient, Kiev attracted Jewish settlers from as early as the 8th century C.E. Their presence is attested to by a letter dating from the 10th century. After a troubled period during the Tartar invasions, the community experienced a period of significant boost starting in the 13th century, making Kiev a main center of Jewish life in medieval Eastern Europe. A saying of the time confirmed that “Teaching comes from Kiev.”
