All Russian-speaking population of Damascus and its surroundings is invited for participation, according to the Russian Orthodox Church website.
Copies of the Bible for studies were brought to Syria which enabled to start such classes. The Russian Bible Society published the Bible for studies a year ago. Nelly Kuskova delivered the book to the country. She is one of the chiefs of the Committee on Solidarity with Peoples of Syria and Lebanon. Nelly Kuskova was a member of the delegation which recently attended the Middle East.
Studies will be taught by the Moscow Patriarch representative of Antioch Patriarch, Doctor of Theology Superior Arseniy (Sokolov).
Such classes were conducted each week in Beirut for 4 weeks. Studies are free of charge and meant for everybody who is interested in the Holy Bible.
