Limmud FSU Belarus special events
Limmud FSU, in partnership with the government of Belarus, the Belarus Jewish community and the Israeli Embassy of Belarus in Minsk, conveyed the first Limmud FSU conference held in the capital May 13-15.
With more than 750 participants from across the country, Limmud FSU Belarus has been the largest and most significant Jewish event locally in recent years, providing Belarus Jews an unprecedented cultural, educational, communal, and social experience.
Limmud FSU Belarus concluded with a special day in the city of Bobruysk, premiering two photo exhibitions of Zionist pioneers whose roots were also in the area, journalists and political activists Abba Ahimeir and Berl Katznelson.
The former came from Dolgi, a village near Bobruysk, while the latter was from Bobruysk. The exhibition has been opened by Ahimeir’s son, the prominent Israeli journalist Yossi Ahimeir, and his siblings, Ya’akov and Zeeva, as well as Katznelson’s niece, Dita (Judith) Vered-Katznelson.
The day’s events included a meeting with the city’s mayor and a tour of local Jewish points of interest.
