By Eliyana Adler
Taking a detour from an academic conference, Penn State University scholar Eliyana Adler made a roots trip to visit the obscure village in western Ukraine from which, a century ago, her grandmother and her family had emigrated — twice. In this essay, Adler contemplates the experience, reflecting on the “odd phenomenon” of Jewish heritage travel and the impact of visiting physical spaces — and wondering about both their enduring presence and their eventual disappearance.
