Hundreds of thousands of Jews from across the Former Soviet Union openly celebrated, this past long weekend, the opening of the High Holidays together with more than 110 of the FJC’s representatives in the major cities and in an additional 420 communities.

Services and the blowing of the shofar, alongside festive meals, took place in the communal Synagogues, and special events, such as concerts and classes, were held in the previous days in preparation for the festive upcoming holidays.

Hundreds of additional events are expected to take place during the following weeks as Jews around the world – and in the FSU too – will be celebrating Yom Kippur, Sukkot and Simchat Torah.
