THE STRUGGLE FOR RUSSIAN JEWRY IS NOT OVER!

SHAMIR is the oldest voluntary association for Russian Jewry in Israel.

Founded in 1972, our motto has been "Russians helping Russians".
SHAMIR is dedicated to bringing Judaism to Russian-speaking Jews through our charitable programs and high quality Russian-translated books.

During the Communist regime, SHAMIR smuggled Russian-translated Jewish books into the USSR to the point where we were considered a threat to the Soviet government.

"I am extremely impressed by SHAMIR's extensive activities, especially its translation of basic Jewish texts geared to new immigrants and to our brethren still locked behind the Iron Curtain who are thirsting for information about their Jewish and Israeli heritage."
