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.

“This 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.
