Jewish communities have existed in the territory of Ukraine from the time of Kievan Rus’ (one of Kyiv city gates were called Judaic) and developed many of the most distinctive modern Jewish theological and cultural traditions such Hasidism. While at times they flourished, at other times they faced periods of persecution and antisemitic discriminatory policies. Before World War II, a little under one-third of Ukraine’s urban population consisted of Jews who were the largest national minority in Ukraine.
