The Constitution provides for the freedom of religion, with all denominations equal. More than 30 religious societies are registered and receive tax-exempt status.  The Belarusian Orthodox Church is by far the largest in the country, followed by the Roman Catholic Church. Various Protestant denominations (including Evangelical Baptist, Seventh-day Adventist, Calvinists, Lutherans, Apostolic Christian, Beha’i and others) Judaism and Islam are represented in smaller communities throughout the country. Missionary groups, such as Campus Crusades, Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and the International Christian Fellowship have a growing number of followers. The Jewish community has not fully recovered from the devastation of WWII.  It remains small, but there are active Synagogues. Services are in Russian, Belarusian, or Polish.
