About us

The orphanage “Our Family”

A house where you get kindness with big spoons!

The orphanage was earlier called “Anita center Big Family”, but during the work on the websight redesign we chose a new name – “Our Family”. This is a unique institution with no analogues in Russia. Jewish children, deprived of parental warmth and care, get here something that cannot be provided by any child care institution of this kind. Associations that come to mind when we hear the word "orphanage" have nothing in common with our Boarding House. So we are against being called an "orphanage". In addition to the warm and in every sense of the word parental relationship, children receive here full medical, psychological and pedagogical rehabilitation. Most children warmed by this large Jewish family, had been forced to sleep on the streets and beg not to die of hunger just a short time ago. In such cases studies were impossible to think about. In our Boarding House children are brought up in the spirit of Jewish traditions, get an excellent education. Here they are provided with kosher food, attend various Jewish events, go to synagogue, observe Shabbat and celebrate all national holidays. After finishing school they have the opportunity to enter the best Russian and foreign universities.

Problems of the Boarding House

“Отказывать детям, попавшим в беду - не в наших правилах. По мере сил и возможностей мы помогаем всем сиротам, о которых нам становится известно. Наш Пансион располагается на первом этаже жилого семиэтажного дома в помещении бывшего детского сада. Мы не можем отказывать в помощи несчастным детям, поэтому количество воспитанников Пансиона постоянно растет. У детей светлые комнаты, спальни по три и четыре ребёнка на больших односпальных кроватях. Огромная благодарность Собянину Сергею Семеновичу за поддержку нашего дома от всех детей России, за красоту и благоустройство Москвы! За время изоляции, мы благоустроили прилегающий двор, навели невероятную красоту всем на радость. Дети ходят в разные государственные школы Басманного района и получают должное образование. Мы благодарны всем кто искренне помогают нам! Всевышний дарит добро руками людей!

The History of Our House

The orphanage “Our Family” was earlier called "Anita Center Big Family" and officially opened on 18 June 1999 in the framework of Moscow Jewish community. The orphanage was founded by a married couple – Svetlana and Raphael, Khakhiashvili, under the patronage of the Chief Rabbin of Moscow Pinkhas Goldschmidt. Jewish house for orphans took a very difficult but honorable mission. It consists in helping Jewish children, left homeless and without parental care, to start a new life. For more than 18 years already the Jewish orphanage has not only been providing children with shelter and the minimum required for basic survival (food, clothing, education), but also creating all the necessary conditions for development - cultural, psychological, intellectual and physical.

The Mission of Our House

Our main goal is to give disadvantaged Jewish children a full life based on the Jewish tradition, and to provide them with a wonderful education. You can find more details about the life of our Boarding House in the section "What are we doing for Jewish orphans?". Within eighteen years more than one hundred Jewish children received rehabilitation in our Boarding House.
