Most of us draw a blank. The name is not connected to any image that comes readily to mind--it's just another geographical spot in that conglomerate of vague old-new nations awkwardly tagged, "The Former Soviet Union."For others, the name Kishinev has sinister connotations, recalling grim photos of piles of bodies--Jewish victims of the terrible pogroms which were perpetrated there at the turn of the century.
Today, these tragic scenes have happily given way to scenes of joy--scenes of a vibrant, spirited Jewish life.
