Jews recently took part in two momentous occasions, when
they hosted a traditional Jewish wedding and bar mitzvah. These were
he first Jewish lifecycle ceremonies in more than 70 years. Lubavitch
emissary Rabbi Shneur Segal led the ceremony in the local synagogue, after
which guests enjoyed a festive banquet.
More than 150 guests came to the wedding. Local officials, including the
regional vice-governor, guests from Pyatigorsk, Moscow and nearby Rostov and
Volgograd joined the Jewish community in celebration.
Arnold Gavrilov, a Krasnodar native, met his future wife Rena Benyamin
while on a trip to Israel. The bride had moved there from Pyatigorsk five years
ago, and the young couple made the decision to resettle in Krasnodar.
On the morning of the wedding, the Jewish community took part in another
momentous occasion, when they hosted the city's first bar mitzvah ceremony.
More than 30 guests participated. Tanchum Alkhazov of nearby Yeisk
approached the Torah and laid tefilin, after which a shower of candies fell from
the women's balcony.
At a banquet following the ceremony, many offered to assist local Jews in
their effort to build a Jewish center.
