Siberian City Welcomes First Jewish Kindergarten

The Siberian city of Irkutsk, Russia, saw the opening of its first Jewish kindergarten as its oldest Jewish resident, 100-year-old Boris Gornykh, cut a ceremonial ribbon and welcomed students to their first day of classes.

Run by the Jewish community of Irkutsk, a member of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia, the school occupies space in the city’s historic central synagogue. The school comprises three classes of students, and officials plan to expand the institution in coming years.
