May at Beit Juhuro was full of meaningful events. One of them was the commemoration the victory over Nazi Germany in World War II, followed by candle lighting and saying Tehillim together. Another powerful moment was when our Beit Juhuro, Leadership Fellowship students Albert Israilov and Sabina Agamiyev, visited Yura Prizov, who miraculously survived the German occupation in the Caucasus and had the chance to conduct an interview with him. The interview and Yura Prizovs miraculous story can be found on our Facebook page.
On Lag Baomer, the Yorzeit of Shimon Bar Yochai, Beit Juhuro hosted almost 200 people for the celebration. Some of the high lights were the Kabbalistic canlde lighting ceremony, a big Barbecue, music, presents for our little ones and face painting. We are incredibly proud of our Leadership Fellowship participants who planned and realized the whole event, from wrapping presents to marinating and grilling meat till 3 o'clock in the morning. They truly proved themselves to be future Community leaders showing us the Leadership Fellowship program was a true success. Beit Juhuro can be confident that its future is in good hands. We thank Leo Abramov, Dayana Klein, Liza Mardakhaev, Yaangil Mikhaylov, Yafo Markhadhayeva, Andrey Kishiev, Ayzik Nasimov, Mazalyia Mardakhayeva, Yuri Ildatov and Eduard Aminov.
May Hashem bless everyone who is involved in community work with health, wisdom and prosperity!

Lag Baomer Party 2019
Lag Baomer fun for the kids
As part of our Leadership Fellowship program, young Gorsky professionals and college students experienced a truly uplifting Shabbaton this May. The particpants were able to connect to their Kavkazi heritage, experience the beautiful serenity of Shabbat, deepen the friendships with the people they met on the program and enjoy Shabbat meals with Gorsky-style food.
At one of our Gorksy Wednesdays we welcomed Rabbi Yaakov Bar, who is the Rabbi of the city of Lyubertsy, professional musician and conductor. Similar to our Gorsky Wednesday classes for men, Beit Juhuro is now hosting weekly Torah classes for young Gorsky women, ages 18 to 25, every Thursday at 1601 Quentin Road. We are looking foward to see you!
