After restoration, a Karaite kenassa was opened in Simferopol

CrimeaPRESS reports:

In Simferopol, after restoration work, a Karaite kenassa (a temple of the Crimean Karaites) was opened. This is a unique religious object, restored with the support of the President of the Russian Federation, within the framework of the federal target program for the socio-economic development of the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol. As the Head of the Republic of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov emphasized, the restored kenassa will contribute to the preservation of the history, culture, language and traditions of the Karaites of Crimea.

In our multinational republic, the culture and traditions of all peoples are respected. The resumption of the work of the kenassa will contribute to the preservation of the history, culture, language and traditions of the Karaites of Crimea. I am sure that this revived temple will not only be an important religious and ethno-cultural center, but also a place of attraction for tourists, a bright landmark of the Crimean capital— said the Head of the Crimea.

Sergei Aksyonov recalled that in the Ukrainian period, the Karaites sought for the return of the building to the religious community for many years, but this issue was never resolved. Historical justice was restored only after the reunification of Crimea with Russia, which happened thanks to the decision of Vladimir Putin and the will of the Crimeans.

Simferopol Kenassa was built in 1896. Its restoration began in 2016. In the future, in this building it is planned to create a museum named after Tamara Ormeli, who was actively involved in the collection and preservation of household items of the Crimean Karaites and valuables, which eventually make up the bulk of the collection of the future museum.
