    Thanks to the generous Donation of Governor Mr. Yehuda Kanievsky, Every evening an event for the community will take place together with the participation of distinguished guests.

    At the end of the Mincha on the eve of Chanukkah in the Central shul in Moscow, the congregation including many guests, gathered together with great excitement to light the first candle of the Chanukka Menora, by Governor Mr. Yehuda Kanievsky, a friend and supporter of the Marina Central Synagogue.

    The menorah was created by Jewish artist Mr. Alon Lissitzky from Moscow, under the direction of educator Rabbi Avraham Elimelech Gadz, as the Lubavitcher Rebbe said in a speech that the arms of the menorah were originally diagonal rather than curved, citing the medieval Jewish scholar Maimonides. Indeed, tens of thousands of Menora’s have been manufactured in this way all over the world, including many large Menorah’s that provoke great “Pirsumei Nisa” all over the globe.

    One of them stands at the foot of the Kremlin walls in the Russian Federation, and is lit every year by the Chief Rabbi of Russia, Rabbi Berl Lazar, in a very large and exciting public gathering, with the participation of many people, who despite the great cold come to see and sanctify of Hashem.

    The lighting of candles in the main Shul opens the series of Chanukkah events that will last until ‘Zos Chanukkah’, both every evening in the central synagogue itself with the participation of many distinguished and honorable guests.
