Many tens of thousands of Russian-speaking Jews have and are taking their first steps in Judaism, towards observance of Torah and mitzvos, towards their Jewish identity, thanks to our website, begin listening to and watching classes and go on to learning centers and communities worldwide. One could say that www.toldot.ru is the world's largest Russian-speaking Beis Midrash.
One of our goals is to bring Jews from cyberspace into real space: Into communities and shuls, to yeshivos and night classes. It can be said with certainty that a large number of Toldos Yeshurun students have come to Torah classes, to yeshiva, to seminars thanks to our site. And such people can be found not only in our communities, but in all Russian-speaking communities worldwide.
