Kiev province

Cherkassy, a vibrant and vital city of the Ukraine, still has a significant Jewish community, in numbers that show why the Ukraine remains the fourth largest home to Jews in the world. Its Jewish community center and services are the hub of Jewish social services across the Cherkassy Oblast.

The history of this city on the Dnieper is old, including the history of its Jewish community.
