Baha'i Community of Northern Moscow

The Bahá'í Community of Northern Moscow

Welcome to the Northern Moscow district Baha’i Community website.

In 2003 the Universal House of Justice in consultation with the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of Russia divided the Baha’i Moscow Community into several distinct communities based on administrative borders within the city. Our northern community is small, active and welcoming, representing a mix of people from all walks of life. Baha'is from nearby communities regularly join us for spiritual gatherings, Holy Day observances and celebrations. Community activities include devotionals and study classes.
