This chapter explores different facets of the interplay between official government policies and Jewish communal initiatives. It focuses on Kiev, which had a unique status for Jews. It also shows how a ban on Jewish schools before 1901 led to a cat-and-mouse game between the authorities and local Jews who were establishing illegal institutions. The chapter talks about Jews from elsewhere that sought to enter Kiev in order to attend the Russian schools, which had become more difficult after the introduction of strict quotas on Jewish students in 1887. It details how Jews continued to try to reside and gain an education in Kiev despite the restrictions throughout the tsarist period.

Keywords:   Jewish schools, local Jews, illegal institutions, Russian schools, tsarist period, Kiev
