Jewish Cultural Center "Shalom"

Community celebration

  Jewish Cultural Center "Shalom" was founded in 1996 and Jewish people had a chance since that to know more about Jewish culture.

  But the month before that Mark Ioffe initiated a meeting in one of the cafes of the city. That time Jewish Community had not been organized yet; and there were about 100 people gathered in the cafe. People who met at that meeting missed their national tradition very badly, and that was the point to make the final decision: The Community should be organized! The first Board consisted of 10 members, the most energetic and pushing. That is why everybody had a special feeling while preparing to the first official holiday - Purim. And Purim appeared to be unforgettable.

  A lot of time passed since that. There are 750 people in the Community now, taking into account that about 400 Aktobe City inhabitants immigrated to Israel. There is Sunday school there and Art studio. With the help of "Mitsva" Association a long before Hesed was established, there were welfare programs: Help for old people, Home Care and Hot Meals.
