Jewish Center of Ulyanovsk

Over 700 people backed the concert hall for our grand Chanukah Concert named: “Kosher Rhythms” – a combination of Rock, Pop, Jazz, and Classic music by Igor Dabakarov and the “nefesh band”.

The Governor of Ulyanovsk, Mr. Sergei Ivanovitch Marozov, opened up the evening with greeting the whole community with a Happy Chanukah!

He said that Chanukah is a holiday for all people, not only Jews, as it represents the victory of light over darkness and goodness over evil.

He presented four community volunteers with a badge of honor!

Chief Rabbi of Ulyanovsk Rabbi Yossi Marozov went up on stage to publicly thank the governor for all of his amazing work in creating one of the most tolerant regions in the whole world, after which he offered the Governor to light the first candle – the Shamosh, which he kindly accepted. afterwords the Governor took the microphone and said, “lets not forget that I must be good friends with the Jewish community, after all the Rabbi and I share the same last name – Marozov!”
