A new shul has recently opened in Dnipro, Ukraine carrying the name of Harav Levi Yitzchak Schneerson, the city’s Chief Rabbi between 1926-1939, and father of the Rebbe.

The event was honored by hundreds of community members, dignitaries, rabbis, and guests together with the sponsors and patrons of the new institution.

The new ‘Levi Yitzchak’ shul, located on Lazaryana Street, will also serve as a Jewish Community Center and a Chabad House dedicated to spreading Yiddishkeit. The Rebbe’s father was famous for his fierce objection to the communist regime.

The red ribbon was cut by the event’s special guests: the current Chief Rabbi of Dnipro Rabbi Shmuel Kaminetsky, and the members of the Council of the Jewish community of Dnipro, Mr. Levi Sharinov, Mr. Yitzchak Dveris, and Mr. Alexander Petrovsky.

Rabbi Yisroel Gurevich, the shul’s new rabbi was honored with affixing the main mezuzah.

The festive event continued with the inauguration of a new Sefer Torah donated by Mr. Nathan Zolotarevsky, President of the Torah Lubavitch Foundation, followed by joyous dancing and a festive meal as customary.
