Boruch Gorin Rabbi


Boruch Gorin was born in Odessa, Ukraine, in 1973. He studied in a yeshiva in Moscow, Russia, in 1990-1994. In 1991 he founded a monthly magazine "Lechaim" and a publishing house under the same name. He has been heading Public Relations department of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia since 1999 and since 2000 he has been heading the press service of the Chief Rabbi of Russia Berl Lazar. He has been a Chair of the Board of the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center since 2012. Boruch Gorin lived in Odessa until he was 16 years old. Even now, having lived most of his life in Moscow, he feels as an Odessan. Even during the years of stagnation of his childhood, there were mezuzahs hanging in his home and Pesach celebrations were held. As many Odessans, he did well for himself: making a living doing what he loves doing the most, reading. Boruch published a lot of books, wrote a few, and translated a handful. The main event for Boruch was meeting a Lubavitcher Rebbe. His outlook on the purpose of a person combined with a jovial Odessa personality is what made Boruch who he is now.
