Despite the political instability in the city and the entire Ukraine, the Jewish community of Kharkov joined for a Siyum Sefer Torah on the Eve of 11 Nissan.
The entire community – young and old – joined in the momentous celebration. For many it was their first time at such an event.
The Sefer Torah was donated by Shimon Steren – a supporter of the community.
The happiness and feeling of unity felt at the event made everyone leave stronger and inspired despite all the current economic and political instability.
