1 Synagogues in Cyprus
Cyprus Jewish Community Center - Chabad Lubavitch
In 2003 Rabbi Arie Zeev and Shaindel Raskin together with their four children (Menachem Mendel, Shneor Zalman, Chaya Batya Yente and Libah) relocated to Cyprus in an effort to introduce Jewish life into Cyprus. Later on 2008 the fifth children Malkah was born in Cyprus.
They needed to find a house with a good location big enough to hold a large amount of people. Their vision was to build a Jewish community for all Jews living in Cyprus. They wanted to establish a Chabad house where Jewish people and their families can come to pray, eat kosher food, socialize and build a strong community here in Cyprus.
Thanks to the kindness, and generosity of the Rohr family who made the Synagogue possible, Rabbi Raskin and his wife Shaindel have established a Jewish presence in Cyprus. Chabad of Cyprus currently boasts a synagogue, kindergarden, Mikvah, Kosher certifying agency, a Cemetery fund and special summer programs.
They continue to reach out to Jews living in Cyprus through a wide variety of classes and programs designed to reach all ages and levels of Jewish learning. Activities include a discussion groups on Jewish Issues, weekly Talmud & Torah Study Groups, Special Holiday Programs, Jewish E-mail Service and website, Shabbat Meals and Tourist assistance
