All our prayers are going out to the legendary head of the synagogue on Bolshaya Bronnaya in Moscow and our dear friend, Rabbi Yitzhak Kogan, for a speedy and full recovery from coronavirus.
Yitzhak (Izya) Kogan became the rabbi of the synagogue on Bolshaya Bronnaya in 1991. He led the reconstruction of the building, organized a charity canteen at the synagogue as well as medical care for the disabled and a regional public fund for helping blind and partially sighted people.
There is some improvement in the health of Rabbi Kogan, according to his doctor. Refuah shlema!
