Resting on the coast of Olga, Russia, the city of Ulyanovsk is home to a beautiful Jewish community, a source of pride to Russian Jews across the continent. Jews have lived here for over 200 years, but devastations and wars nearly destroyed Jewish life in Ulyanovsk.
The arrival of the esteemed Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok Marozov and his dear wife reignited the kehilla. It has been blossoming for the past eight years, and now boasts a daily minyan for all 3 tefilos, shurai torah for men and women, schools for boys and girls, afternoon classes, summer camps, a kosher grocery, a community newspaper, financial aid for tefilin and mezuzos, food packages for the impoverished for Shabbos and Yom Tov, volunteers for kimpeturins, bikur cholim for the sick and much more.
According to the Rabbi Marozov, an evening kolell is in the works for local Jews who work all day yet wish to learn in shul every night. In deep Russia, they have all that—but the closest mikva remains in Kazan, 4 hours away (8-9 hours total). It’s our duty to help!
15 families have already signed a petition promising to uphold the laws of family purity and to use this new mikva religiously in accordance with halacha
