Yeshiva to Open in Muslim City

Historic: A new Yeshiva will open this week in the Muslim city of Kazan, on the birthday of the Rebbe Rashab, founder of Tomchei Temimim.

There is great excitement in the Jewish community in the city of Kazan, as preparations are underway for the great historical event that will take place this Wednesday.

The 20th of Cheshvan marks the birthday of the fifth Lubavitcher Rebbe, the Rebbe Rashab, who founded Yeshiva Tomchei Tmimim. On the eve of his birthday, yet another branch of this yeshiva will be opened and dedicated: this time in the capital city of the Republic of Tatarstan, which is Russias largest Muslim republic.

The new yeshiva building is situated on the same parcel of land as the citys Central Shul. It boasts large, beautiful study halls that were lavishly renovated and adapted to meet the Yeshivas needs by philanthropist Reb Dovid Aminov of Moscow.

The establishment of this yeshiva constitutes a major breakthrough in the development of the Jewish Community in Kazan. It will host a variety of programs related to the study of Torah and Chassidut for all ages and levels, from beginners to advanced, under the leadership of the Shliach Rabbi Yitchak Gorelik.

The announcement about the new yeshiva was covered in all the local media, especially about the guests of honor slated to attend the opening ceremony.

These include the Chief Rabbi of Russia, Rabbi Berl Lazar, the President of the Republic of Tatarstan, Mr. Rustam Minnihanov, the president of the Federation of Jewish Communities in the FSU, Rabbi Alexander Boroda, philanthropist Mr. David Aminov, Mayor of Kazan Mr. Ilsur Metchin, and many other friends and supporters of the community.
