The sprawling growth of the Jewish community in the Ukrainian city of Dnepr, led by Head Shliach and Chief Rabbi Shmuel Kaminezki, is being reflected in an ambitious and distinctive new housing project.
Architectural plans were drawn to build an apartment building that will house families of Shluchim, teachers, sofrim, shochtim and other providers of religious services in the community, COLlive.com has learned.
The project is being called “Beit Mashiach” and will be able to welcome 130 families. “Construction of the magnificent building has begun and will be ready, please G-d, by the summer of 2021,” Rabbi Kaminezki said.
The initiative of this unique project originated with Mr. Nathan Zolotorevzki, a member of the board of the Jewish community in Dnepr and President of the Shiurey Torah Lubavitch (STL), the Jewish youth movement in Ukraine.
Rabbi Kaminezki and Mr. Zolotorevzki have ensured that the apartments are large and comfortable to suit the needs of the shluchim who will be able to continue dedicating their lives to their shlichus, without any housing concerns, they said.
The project is located close to the Menorah Center, the world’s largest Jewish complex which is a spiritual, cultural and business center of the Jewish community in Dnipro in Eastern Ukraine.
The community will be holding next month a fundraising event and gala dinner at the Menorah Center for this charitable housing project.
The gala event will take place December 18 – 20 Kislev at the Menorah Center in Dnepr. All are invited to attend.
