Place of the community

The episode follows members to choir practice, senior club, and community get-togethers at Club Judaica.

Alla Mesionzhnik leads the choir in the community, and Radolf Anapolski runs the senior citizens’ club. They talk about community events and the importance of the community, especially for people who share a migration history and whose mother tongue is Russian. Nina Kossinski works as a cook for the community. As she prepares for Rosh Hashanah, she talks about the importance of eating together.
