Changing the Lives of Jews in the Former Soviet Union

Yad Yisroel

Belarus Shabbaton

Close to 100 participants came to our “Chaika” summer resort to spend a weekend together. Most of the participants were children from our online Sunday school and their mothers. This was a most inspiring first time Shabbos experience for almost all who attended, and were able to see and feel what a Shabbos is meant to be.
Learning and recreation programs were conducted throughout the weekend, appropriate for each age group. During Havdala you could notice the disappointment of the attendees when they realized that Shabbos was ending.
After Shabbos, 9 parents came up to register their children to Yad Yisroel’s school and dormitory in Pinsk.
