THE STRUGGLE FOR RUSSIAN
JEWRY IS NOT OVER!
is the oldest voluntary association for Russian Jewry in Israel.
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.
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."
