Former Baranovich

Yeshiva Ahavas Torah Baranovich was founded in 1997 to give life and continuity to the important Jewish Community of Baranovich, fifty-five years after the complete annihilation in 1942 of that large and vibrant community.

Baranovich (Baranovici), White Russia, took shape in the latter part of the 19th century on a strategic intersection of important railway lines.

Both the Warsaw - Bialestok - Minsk - Moscow and the Cracow - Lublin - Brest - Minsk - Moscow trains passed through Baranovich, as well as the Rovno - Vilna - Riga line.
