The Jewish community of Chelyabinsk, Russia, welcomed a new Torah scroll to the city’s synagogue during a grand celebration last week coordinated by Chabad-Lubavitch Rabbi Meir Kirsh.

The Torah was donated by Maxim Aharonov in memory of his father Mark Aharonov.

Celebrants paraded the scroll down the city’s streets, which had been cordoned off by police for the occasion, before partaking of dancing and a feast inside the synagogue at the center of town.
