About this talk
Gregory Touretsky was born in Novisibirsk, Russia. He remembers secret Passover celebrations in his grandfather's house in the early 80s. He was an activist in the raising Jewish community during the 90s while studying Computer Sciences at university. He organized public Jewish holidays' celebrations, taught Hebrew and traditions in a Jewish Sunday school, helped to publish local Jewish newspapers - and eventually moved to Israel, where he lived for almost 20 years. A few years ago Gregory relocated with his family to the US, where he works as Product Manager and Architect. In his rare spare time, he continues to explore his family history - and the overall Jewish history of Siberia.
