Klaudia is a Jewish immigrant from Kiev, Ukraine. She grew up as an atheist, yet realized that the Soviet government was morally and spiritually bankrupt. When her son turned 18, Klaudia and her family decided to move to America. As the family passed through Italy on their way to America, they met a Baptist pastor, who gave them a Bible, and they heard for the first time that Jesus was the Jewish Messiah. Klaudia decided to read the Old Testament to find out if this was true. After studying for some time, she realized it was. Soon after that, her entire family came to America as believers in Jesus! In 1997, Klaudia was invited to serve with Chosen People Ministries. Her ministry is in Brooklyn among Russian Jewish immigrants. She understands them because she is one of them. Klaudia is now leading the Russian-speaking congregation, Gesher HaShamayim, at the Feinberg Messianic Center. She also oversees all of our Russian ministry where we offer English classes and different cultural programs where the Bible is taught and the Gospel is proclaimed.
