Jewish outreach in Ukraine


A new project will help non-observant Jews in a central Ukrainian city celebrate Passover.

Shiurei Torah Foundation, which operates as a part of the Jewish community of Dnepropetrovsk, launched the project.

Community activists organized a telephone campaign to identify Jews who do not regularly participate in Jewish communal life. Volunteers will help to acquaint them with the Passover commandments and invite them to participate in one of several communal seders.

Along with the Shiurei Torah Foundation, the project is a cooperative arrangement with the Dnepropetrovsk Jewish community headed by Rabbi Shmuel Kaminetzky, and the family of Rabbi Meir Stambler, the executive director of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Ukraine.
