For the past 8 months at least once a week I’ve been attending class sessions hosted by Beit Juhuro (on Ave S east 7th). Beit Juhuro started more than 2 years ago by 7 individuals, who wanted to get together, socialize with like-minded people, learn the Gorsky traditions and study Torah. The Rabbi of the organization a dedicated individual is Rabbi Ephraim Ilyaguyev.
Since then it has evolved into much more and a realization came that they were truly building a foundation for a leaning center in the Gorsky community. Classes started to be added almost every day of the week. Tuesday’s sessions taught by Rabbi Zitron, Gorsky Wednesdays by Ephraim, Thursdays by Rabbi Nachum and most importantly the first weekly class for Kavkazi GIRLS.
The organization has events for all major holidays as well as fun events like barbecues and Shesh Besh tournaments. In addition, Beit Juhuro had many monthly guest speakers ranging from top business man, ex-Israeli soldiers, Jewish historians, and other professional s who have volunteered to share their experiences.
From merely just 7 people 2 years ago to almost 100+ members growing strong they have built an amazing learning center for the Gorsky community.
Currently the space is being provided free by the Syrian community. With growth in membership almost every week and wanting to create activities for married couple, kids, and teenagers they are at capacity in growth at the current location.
Recently the organization started a fundraiser to collect $200k to rent space from a bigger facility so they can have more control in adding addition classes/activities. Not only do they want build a second Gorsky Synagogue but more important build an expansive learning center for our community, a community where our future kids can come to learn and grow.
If you interesting in building a community and creating an environment for growth and knowledge than please donate. And don’t forget to share.
