mission statement

beit-bessarabia is a community of jewish people of bessarabian decent. Our goal is preserve our traditions, memories, help Bessarabians wherever they live

I was born in Bessarabia in 1967. My parents were born there in 1930s. My granparents were born there in 1900s. Many generations of my family lived and died in villages and shtetls across the territory clunched between Nistru and Prut rivers. They were bessarabian jews which are so different. They spoke different yiddish, they made different farshmak. We, their decendants, left the place. We live in Israel, Australia or USA but the shared traditions and memories make us Bessarabian.
