The Mendele Mocher Seforim Museum, the museum named after the late Jewish novelist, will be opened here in October.

One hundred and thirty valuable historic Jewish articles collected by the research expedition sent out to collect Jewish antiquities and articles relating to Jewish culture will be exhibited at the opening of the museum. The articles were collected in the provinces of Voiynia and Podolia.
