The Central Spiritual Board for Russian Karaites Abroad was founded in the Netherlands as an organization around 2005 by Gershom Qiprisci, an Israeli Jewish pastor for Subbotniks in the Old Russian Karaite style. Together with the IICK it convened the 1st World Congress of the European Karaim in July 2008 in Prague to discuss among other things the need to establish the Board of the Religious Community of Lithuanian Karaims (BRCLK) as a Central Spiritual Board for Sabbatarians who believe the Lithuanian Karaim religion in the Old Russian Karaite style. Although that plan failed an alternative Central Spiritual Board for the Russian Qaraim was anyway appointed.
