The center's main tasks are:
- Joining the Jews of Astana and Astana region;

The Astana JCC keeps close contacts with local authorities. The JCC constantly takes part in city activities and festivals. The Ministry of Culture in its turn presented the JCC with folk Jewish costumes, diplomas, and awards.

The following programs operate in the community center:

  • Family club. People of different ages gather to learn about Jewish family traditions and tell about their life. Everybody willing can learn Hebrew. The club members also have a good tradition of celebrating their birthdays.


  • Women's club. The head is Olga Kreitchman.


  • Historical club. The club members learn the history of Israel and the Jewish people. The lessons are conducted by Michael Kreitchman. Thanks to his sociality and other personal qualities the program is very popular among the community members.


  • "Shatil" children's club attracts more and more community members. Children learn many interesting things about Jewish traditions and history. They participate in quizzes, competitions, and applied arts section.


  • JCC volunteer Nina Levina teaches the children Jewish songs.
