I do not know where are the offices of the Jewish Community. However, you
may wish to contact the offices of the Jewish Welfare Fund Hesed-Sushana in
Cz. , located at Vul. O. Kobilyanskoy 53 and try to see Dr. Iosip BUrsuk,
who is the medical Director of this institution. He does not speak English;
he speaks Russian, German, Yiddish, and perhaps still some Romanian. The
e-mail addres of Hesed-Shushana is: Another contact you may wish to try is: Mr. Felix
Zuckermann, also a real Cz. Veteran. He is a very nice gentleman, I saw him
when I was in Cz. in May 2006. His e-mail: : Phone:
++38-(0)372-55 12 46. I am not sure whether he speaks English or even
Romanian. I communicated with in German (Hochdeutsch).
Good luck,
Abraham Kogan
