Jewish “Habad Serbia” Centre Opens In Belgrade

12.09.2016 The Jewish Centre “Chabad Serbia” has opened in Belgrade as the first centre of the Chabad Lubavitch organisation in Serbia, which is tasked with preserving Jewish tradition and culture.

The ribbon was officially cut by Rabbi Joshua Kaminecki, H.E. Canadian Ambassador to Serbia Philip Pennington, and Vladimir Božović, adviser to PM Vučić.

Israeli Ambassador to Serbia, H.E. Alona Fisher Kam, announced that Israel and Serbia are linked by the same values and interests, but also the same concerns and hope, and that both of them are looking for ways to provide their citizens with a better life, conditions and education.

The Chabad Centre is a great thing for Jews who travel and want to rest in their own way wherever they are, and to feel the atmosphere and the Israeli way of life.

The reception’s host, Rabbi Joshua Kaminecki, recalled in his welcome address the belief from the Torah that a person works the land for six years, while on the seventh year both the people and the land rest.
