KehilaLink logo    Dashev, Ukraine History

Jews were present in Dashev beginning in the 18th century. Rabbi Shmuel Izik of Dashev was a student of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov (1772-1810), the founder of the Breslov Hasidic movement. By 1880, the Jewish population of Dashev (2,911) was over 50 percent of the total population. However, major pogroms in 1917 and 1919 reduced that population to just under 1,000 people in 1939. By the end of World War II, most of these residents had been killed, and no Jews live in Dashev today.
