Chabad Opens Jewish School in Lenin’s Birthplace

Excitement filled the air as approximately 60 enthusiastic children, parents, grandparents and teachers celebrated the grand opening of the first Jewish childhood education center in Vladimir Lenin’s birthplace of Ulyanovsk, Russia.

Aptly named the “School of Dreams,” the Chabad-Lubavitch run institution is open three days a week for children between the ages of six and 15. Offerings include Jewish traditions, Jewish dance, choir, Hebrew, English, karate, computer science, arts and crafts, and theater. In addition, students will participate in a field trip each month.

The opening ceremony included a ribbon cutting by Jewish community president Igor Dabakarov, a comedy show by three teachers dressed as clowns, and a lesson about the Jewish holidays by Rabbi Yossi Marozov.
