January 2020 @ Beit Juhuro

2020 started with the new semester of the STMEGI , RAJE and Beit Juhuro Leadership Fellowship program which we have greatly anticipated for.

In the course of the next 17 weeks the students will learn about their Jewish, and Gorsky heritage. They will also acquire hands on tools for impacting the community and becoming true leaders.

Rabbi Zitron was the first guest speaker this semester.


We are now starting a short series on the history of Mountain Jews (in addition to studying the Chumash) during the Gorsky Wednesday meetings.

The first Gorsky Wednesday was generously sponsored by Dina Nurilova in memory of her father Mordechai ben Yechiel.

Our special thanks go to Alexander Krym and Yehuda Ashurov for organizing this month’s Oneg Shabbat program with words of Torah, songs and refreshments! The Oneg Shabbats became a real Highlight of each month.

We regret to inform you about the passing of Yaffa Izrailov,
mother of our dear member Dr. Alexander Izrailov, as well as, the grandmother of our dear friend Ariel Razilov, Zoya Razilova.

We are incredibly  proud of Polina Purim Isakova who gave her first class ever at our Ladies First. We wish her tremendous growth and looking forward to hearing many more Shiurim!

On January 22, during one of the Ladies First meetings, Rabbi Yitzhak Fingerer (BJX) gave a thought provoking class on the topic “Your Weakness May Be Your Greatest Strength”, followed by delicious dinner. We spent a great evening together and are already looking forward to the next meeting. 

Please pray for one of our members, a young man in his 30s who was in comma and needs our prayers now!

His name is Shamil Shmuel Haim ben Ella.

To all Beit Juhuro Members:

Thank you for your involvement! We appreciate all your help and participation towards the fundraiser. It is an exciting and truly historic time in the Gorsky Community of NY! As you know Beit Juhuro has been on a mission to open a Gorsky Kavkazi Synagogue in South Brooklyn. With Your Help we believe it will soon become possible.
On February 20th we will be hosting our Town Hall Meeting where everyone will have a chance to get updated on the process and express his or her thoughts.
We would love to see you!
