On February, 4, the governor of the Nizhniy Novgorod region visited as an official the Nizhniy Novgorod Community Center at the Gruzinskaya Street.
The head of our region regularly wishes happy main Jewish holidays to Jews of the city of Nizhniy Novgorod and region. He was present at traditional festivities many times; however, it was his first visiting of our synagogue.
The excursion about the Nizhniy Novgorod synagogue, which celebrated last year its 130th anniversary, for the high-ranking visitor was done by the Chief Rabbi of the Nizhniy Novgorod region of Shimon Bergman and President of the Nizhniy Novgorod Jewish Community Eduard Chaprak.
After the end of the excursion program, the governor, leaders of our community and the respected visitors — deputies of the City Duma, leaders of Jewish organizations and activists of the community — sat down to a laid table and gave an opportunity for meeting and contacting. From very busy schedule of Mr. Shantsev the time of the meeting was limited, but he assured him to be ready to continue our dialog “in the same or another format.”
