Repair in the Zaporozhye Jewish school.

During the summer holidays the Jewish school of Zaporozhye does not close its doors but renews them. This is a little repair of the main entrance to the school. It will look different both outside and inside.

A pleasant working atmosphere is in the school with light scent of the materials used. The work is going on and the administration of the school hopes everything will be finished soon.

New grass sprang out of the new football play ground which the young football players dreamt for a long time. Due to the proper attitude to the raising Jewish children this dream came true. This gift appeared in the school during the summer holidays and will certainly give much fun to children.

Everybody in the school is busy with the preparations… Читать дальше »

Guests from Moscow in Beis Stern Schullmann synagogue

Recently the Krivoy Rog synagogue received guests from Moscow, Russia. It was Grigoriy Barnopol'skiy, the Art Director of the Kaskadyor Moscow Stuntmen Theatre. This visit was a significant event for him for he was born and raised in this city.

The excursion about the synagogye and the visit to the Mikhail Marmer Museum were constantly interrupted with the memories of the honored guest. He heartily memorized the Glinki street before the War, about his youth years which he spent in a musical and circus education establishment and even his trip to Stalindorf where, as he said, the Jews were "not like in the city, they still lived according to the Jewish tradition".

And one more important thing. Grigoriy Barnopol'skiy came… Читать дальше »

News from Pervomaysk (Nikolayev region).

Silence rests now in the Pervomaysk synagogue for summer has come. Lessons in the Jewish Center for Development of Children are over. The children learned much new and interesting during the year and found many friends for they are all children of one nation. But this silence is temporary. Soon the summer camp will start where the children will meet their friends again, check and consolidate the knowledge of Jewish traditions, get healthier and surely have fun. But at present the synagogue harbors the aged people with their talks, meals and prayers.

New guests in the Jewish city museum.

In the end of June the students of the 7th grades of the Krivoy Rog School of National Minorities in which the children of Ukrainians, Russians, Assirians, Greeks, Jews, Azerbaidjanians, Armenians, Romas learn attended the lecture on tolerance at the Mikhail Marmer Jewish Museum.

The lecture began with a psychological workshop. The children were offered to find similarities and differences between themselves in eye color, clothes, dates of birth and so forth to show how they are all similar and different at a time. This was very funny. Then the children found out the level of their personal tolerance toward themselves in the game called Mirror. It appeared that not everything is okay in this sphere and this was… Читать дальше »
