The Minister of Culture, Bogdan Gheorghiu, declared that Thursday’s meeting with the ambassador of the State of Israel in Romania, David Saranga, represented an opportunity of thinking about future projects, of which the invitation to our country of theater actress Lea Koenig and the attributing of the artist’s name to a street in Bucharest.
“The embassy of Israel wishes to invite the great theater actress from Israel, Lea Koenig, to Romania. Born in Poland, she emigrated to Romania ,where she studied theater at the National Art University in Bucharest, making her debut in the State Jewish Theater. The Ministry of Culture salutes and supports the embassy’s initiative of naming a street in Bucharest after this great actress. We wish to develop together as many #projects as possible, with a #national impact, which will support #local #communities,” Gheorghiu wrote on Facebook.
Another subject was about the Jewish cemetery in eastern Siret, one of the oldest in Romania.
“It dates back to the XVI-th century and is a good evidence of the old ties between the Romanian and the Jewish community,” Bogdan Gheorghiu said.
