KIEV, Ukraine (JTA) — The Lugansk Jewish community launched a Russian-language Web site for Jewish women.
The site, Jewishwoman.ru features news from and for Jewish communities in the former Soviet Union and Baltic states, as well as information on Jewish holidays and traditions, Jewish education, family life and marriage.
The site is an online version of the publication “The World of Jewish Woman,” created more than 10 years ago by the Jewish community of the eastern Ukrainian city Lugansk. More than 60 women serving as Chabad emissaries in the former Soviet Union and Israel contribute to it. The Web site offers visitors the interactive opportunity to ask questions to rabbis and their wives, and to communicate electronically with other Jews.
