Life Returning to Normal for Georgian Jewish Community

With the immediate threat of war behind them, Jewish residents of the Eastern European republic of Georgia are rebuilding their lives after evacuations and military incursions last month left their futures in the country in doubt. The Tbilisi day school operated by Chabad-Lubavitch Rabbi Meir and Tzippora Kozlovsky is even reporting an increase in enrollment for the school year beginning next week.

Eti Betskashvili, a secretary at the Chabad-Lubavitch center in the Georgian capital, said that while many Jews went to Israel or Turkey, she stayed behind because she didn’t want to leave her home.
