Agricultural Settlement Near (?) Minsk? #belarus

Hi! My grandfather, Julius (Yehuda/Yudel Mendel) WINNER (VAINER), never told us where he was from except that he came from a settlement close to Minsk. I think it could have been an agricultural colony? He did go to a Yeshiva that was so far that his mother knitted one sock on the way there and one on the way back. Could this be the HORODOK yeshiva??
