Education

We make available Russian/Hebrew prayerbooks, Talesim, mezuzot and other religious items to people interested in receiving them.

Chevra is a humanitarian organization, not a religious one. While we help primarily Jewish people, we do not promote religious teaching as a prerequisite or incentive for people to receive our help. Our policy is to informally cooperate with other charities seeking to help Jewish people, but we will help any Jews in need regardless of whether they wish to receive religious information or not.

Jewish life in the Former Soviet Union disintegrated during the communist period. People want to know more about their heritage, but most often it exists as a far off memory of something their grandparents did. We make available Russian/Hebrew prayerbooks, Talesim, mezuzot and other religious items to people interested in receiving them.

In addition, we assist all Jewish people seeking to immigrate to Israel, getting them to the boats or airports, as well as help them with passports and their paperwork. We established homes in Israel of elderly holocaust survivors without family, so they too could immigrate to Israel.
