RELIGIOUS LIFE IN SHYMKENT

  Regular Torah lessons have began in Shymkent this summer. Members of Shymkent community started studying the main Jewish book with gusto. For many people the lessons became vitally important. They find answers for religious questions that troubled them, and bind their lives with their fathers and grandfathers' belief.

  Not so long ago the students were read the Week chapter of the Torah, but they did not limited themselves with simple introduction to the text. The community members eagerly discussed the meaning of the chapter. The religious life of Jews in Shymkent is rather varied. Besides Torah lessons and the Shabbat they have a service held in synagogue every Saturday. Lev Uvaydov, the coordinator of Hesed religious program, holds a prayer with more than 20 men.
