July @ Beit Juhuro

While we are slowly approaching the last month of the summer (time flies!), we would like to look back at all the things that took place at Beit Juhuro in July.

We continued our fascinating talks with PhD, Svetlana Danilova, on the history of Gorsky Jews, covering the topics: “Pyatigorsk, NY and why did we leave Kavkaz?” and ” Kavkaz Jews in Israel”. Since there are only a few experts on Gorsky Jewish history, it is even more of an honor to have Mrs Danilova share her vast knowledge with us! The talks are usually followed Rabbi Ilyaguev’s Torah classes. This month we spoke about the 4th of July, the concept of freedom and the 17 of Tamuz – the song of Asaf and some related Halachot.

Mazal tov to Rabbi Zitron on the birth of his daughter Ahuva Sara! May she be healthy and bring a lot of light to the world!


Since a few families in our community expressed their strong desire to relocate to NJ, we hosted a discussion to discover possible locations and brainstorm on the prospect of moving our Gorsky community outside of NYC. So far, it doesn’t look like there will be a mass migration. We are always looking out for the needs of our people, whether they want to live in NYC or elsewhere and will include them in any relevant decisions that have to be made at Beit Juhuro.


During the Gorsky Wednesday sessions our men learned talmudic stories of the destruction of the temple and studied the laws and customs of the 9 days. Rabbi Ilyaguev prepared us for the fast of Suruni on Tisha Be Av, as well as all the related Halachot. Rabbi Zitron spoke about the purpose of suffering and the Segulot that help prevent it. Another highlight of the month was the conversation with our three very special speakers Gabriel Shagabaev, Ariel Elizarov, Vice President of the Avenue C Shul and Svetlana Danilova.

You can find the recordings of their classes below.


We wish everyone a good rest of the summer!
