Ufa, Russia

With the new Jewish Community Center in Ufa, Russia, entering into its final stages of construction, the 13,000 Jewish residents of this city on the western slopes of the Ural mountains and surrounding communities, are anticipating the inauguration of what promises to be a one-stop-center for all Jewish activities in the city.

"It will become not only a center for spiritual development and religious services, but will also constitute the center of Jewish life in the city," said Chabad Rabbi Dan Krichevsky.

With access to the city's historic synagogue limited to a yearly celebration of Jewish culture, the new facilit y will tend to the daily needs of the community with a kindergarten, Jewish day school, kosher restaurant, library, and soup kitchen, reported FJC.ru.

The elegant, three-story JCC was built with a generous grant from the Rohr Family Foundation, Keren Keshet and the Federation of Jewish communities of the CIS.
