The Sunday University: Jews during the Revolution

On December 15th the regular session of the Sunday University was held. Dr. Igor Shchupak, the inspirer and moderator of the project, told about Participation of Jews in the revolutions of 1905 and 1917. The lecturer has set himself a difficult task to tell about the events in the Russian Empire, and course of the revolutions in Ukraine. During the lectures Dr. Shchupak dispels many myths concerning the participation of Jews in the revolutions. In particular the myth about Jews organizers of the revolution in Russia, that is common for the historical consciousness of many residents of the former Soviet.
But there is no doubt in the participation of Jews in the revolutionary events (as well as representatives of any other national minorities living in the territory of Russia territory). There were serious preconditions for this. Despite the high level of education, many Jews were not able to enter the universities, and thus to leave the pale of settlement. The consciousness of Jews rebelled against the restrictions of rights. Dr. Igor Shchupak says that according to the legend Tsar Nicholas II was visited by the delegation of rabbis. They asked to cancel the threshold for number of Jews entering the universities (he defined the maximum number of Jews who could become a student). Otherwise, it will be impossible to avoid the uprising of the Jewish youth.
