UCSJ Preserves Jewish Heritage

"'Lviv is known in the world not because of hotels but because of its common  cultural heritage,' said Meylakh Sheykhet, who heads Lviv’s Jewish community.  Sheykhet is part of a group that filed several lawsuits to stop construction of  the hotel."


"Meylakh Sheykhet, Ukraine’s representative in the Union of Councils for Jews in  the former Soviet Union, is a driving force in preserving western Ukraine’s  decaying Jewish cultural heritage. He said his aim is to try to preserve as much  of it as possible, however challenging that may be financially or  practically."
