An emotional Bar Mitzva Celebration was held for three students of Chabad’s Ohr Avner School in the city of Vinitza in Western Ukraine.
It began with Tefillin wrapping at the central Chabad House by Vinitza’s Shliach Rabbi Shaul Horvitz. In attendance were special guests from Israel, as well as Moscow, including the Tefillin donors, Rabbi Tzvi Beck, the Shliach from Berditchev Rabbi Moshe Thaler, Rabbi Berl Eidelkopf, and Rabbi Yossel Meshi-Zahav.
The seudas mitzvah was held in the spacious new wing that was recently dedicated, adjacent to the shul. Rabbi Horvitz spoke from his heart, and thanked the community’s supporters, the Beck family of Yerushalaim, Rabbi Moshe Aharon Rabinowitz, and others, for their unwavering support of Vinitza’s ever-growing Jewish community.
Special appreciation was expressed to businessman, Mr. Dov Weintraub for sponsoring the new wing, much to the delight and convenience of the many shul goers of Vinitza.
