Hundreds attended the opening of a new Jewish Community Center in the Romanian
city of Timisoara last Sunday. It was the fourth Jewish center funded by the
American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee to open in the East European
country catering to its Jewish population of approximately 10,000.
JCC will give the community a base for reaching out to the large number of
unaffiliated Jews in Timisoara, provide lay- and professional-level Jewish
activities, and truly revive and bring new life to this small community,” said
Israel Sabag, JDC’s country director for Romania.
