Aliyah DaDa presents a well documented history of Jews in Romania. In 1882, a small community in  Moinești was leaving for the Holy Land, to establish one of the first settlements in Palestine. Since then, the path of Jews towards Israel has been intertwined with the history of modern Romania through a love-hate bond, the influences of which might not be ever quantified. The historical tale is visually trimmed in the Dada style as a tribute to the pioneers of this movement, Tristan Tzara and Marcel Janco, two Jews of Romanian descent
