People of our community  Jewish Cultural Center in Pavlodar City is one of the oldest in Kazakhstan. In 1990 about 500 people united in one organization. Before that there were several small units where people gathered to remember their tradition passed from generation to generation, to talk about interesting things or just to meet nice people. And also they wanted to study their native language.

  That time everybody interested could study with a teacher from Moscow. Step by step a national school was founded. Later, in 90s this school got its official status, it worked under the aegis of Small Assembly of the People of Kazakhstan. It was a School of the National Revival. Now the representatives of different nations, including Jews, have a chance to prepare their own holidays, performances of choruses and dancing ensembles.

  Every Monday people gather in Pavlodar JCC just to talk about life. They enjoy reading letters from those who moved to Israel, people discuss the details of Israel life: family life, relations with the new coworkers, etc.

  It is natural for the Jewish community to study and keep to their background. Thus, they study the Torah on Saturdays after the prayer.

  And of course, they celebrate holidays together, enjoying Rosh-Hashanah and emancipation from slavery at Purim.
