On March 11, 2021, the assistant abbess of the Holy Ascension Convent in Jerusalem, Nun Rafaila (Abu Leyl), passed away.

Shortly before her death we managed to record the memories of mother Rafaila about the long-term abbess of the monastery – Mother Tamara (duchess Romanova).

We present these reminiscences of Mother Rafaila for our viewers.
