  Jewish Community Center in Taraz is almost the youngest Community Center in Kazakhstan. By the time it was established there were National Centers of almost all Diasporas of Dzhambulskaya Oblast.

Kabbalat Shabbat  On 28 December 1998 42 people gathered to establish Cultural Center where Jews can communicate to each other, remember Jewish history and traditions.

  Since that time the inhabitants of Merke and Lugovoy, Kurday and Dzhanatas, Burnoaya and Rovnaya and Karatau have joined Taraz JCC. Now there are 302 people in JCC and the number of people is continuing growing day by day. Cultural Center is working on searching Jews and people willingly apply to it. There are Hebrew courses, volunteers read lectures on Jewish history and traditions, and the youngest members of the Community go to Sunday school, other people study in Open University. During the last two years the Center got into contacts with the representatives of other Cultural Centers.

Chanukkah  People at the Center are trying to keep all Jewish traditions: they celebrate Shabbat and other holidays. The members of the Community until now remember the celebration of Purim, organized because of financial support of "Mitsva" Association and "Joint". Is it necessary to add that the holiday was interesting and everybody had a good time.

  And yet they are very proud in Taraz of the event they invented themselves. For the first time there was a Day of Widows in June 2000. There were a lot of women with different and interesting lives; they were united by one sorrow - they had lost their spouses.
