Irina Meleshkina: “Traveling Stars in Ukraine, Jewish Theater in the Pages of History”

Ukrainian Jewish Encounter (UJE) is a Canadian philanthropic organization that has been working since 2008 to strengthen relations between our two peoples. This year marks the sixth time we are presenting our organization’s initiatives and projects to the participants and visitors of the 26 BookForum in Lviv, and, in the interests of a broader international dialogue, supporting discussions around books that reinforce and affirm the values we disseminate.

On 19 September 2019, the 26 BookForum featured a roundtable discussion of Irina Meleshkina’s books Traveling Stars in Ukraine, Jewish Theater in the Pages of History, (Kyiv, Dukh i Litra), and the collection Jewish Culture (Lviv, LNU), with the participation of Roman Lavrenti, Head of the Department of Cultural and Educational Work of the Scientific Library of Ivan Franko National University of Lviv and Andriy Pavlyshyn, co-founder of the Lviv BookForum.
