From March 14th to 16th in city of Kazan passed the Jewish seminar Shabbaton. Participants of a seminar have vigorously sustained eleven hours per ways by the bus.
In a rest house "Regina" all participants had been met by kind and smiling madrihs - those who should organize in the subsequent leisure of visitors.
All participants of Shabbaton were in good mood and looked not tired. After their breakfast improbably interesting program where everyone could express creative abilities and skills to the full expected.
It was a Friday, and by the Jewish tradition in the evening we received on a visit Great Saturday. Beautifully dressed, with smiles on persons, women lit Shabbat candles and with pleasure in a voice wished all: " Shabbat Shalom " (Good Saturday). Children were turned around of candles which fires gave associates warmly and pleasure. Here also has come Shabbat.
The celebratory meal also concealed in itself many the pleasant moments. Fascinating tasks, draws and, certainly, a pleasant atmosphere which reigned in a hall, all this somehow lifted our mood.
On Shabbat adults and children were expected with considerable number of surprises and pleasant opening. Time Avdalah (branches of Saturday from other days of week) has imperceptibly come. The culmination Shabbaton was fireworks, it has as though expressed all those positive emotions which have collected at each of us for these two days lead together.
