Dniepropetrovsk Jewish school is one from the first Jewish schools in CIS, and it has the largest number of enrolled children. Its full name is Dniepropetrovsk municipal specialized school "Or Avner Chabad Lubavitch” named after Levi Yitzchak Schneerson with profound study of Hebrew, History of the Jewish Nation and the Jewish Traditions.  It was founded in 1991 due to the support of "Or Avner - Chabad Lubavitch" Fund, headed by its President, Mr. Levy Lyevayev.The school had 216 students then.
