TRIP UNDER THE PROGRAM OF EUROSTARS—2015

It is more for than three years that youth of the Nizhny Novgorod Jewish Community have taken part in the All-Russian educational project of Eurostars! For about six months, every Friday, in our synagogue we attended lectures by the Rabbi of Shimon Bergman and other invited lecturers. The completion of this program was the seven day trip to Europe. This year, 25 young people from Nizhny Novgorod have participated in an unforgettable travel for France and Germany. There were inhabitants of more than 20 cities and towns of Russia. This is event was really grandiose!

On April, 28, we flew in Paris and it started kind of thing! The program of the trip was not simply rich; we were passing every minute sensibly! Bus excursion about the city, walk about Montmartre, at the Eiffel Tower, Versailles, Louvre, Triumphal Arc, Disneyland (oh, yes, we enjoyed very much to be there when someone is either five or 25), visiting of the famous Jewish district in Paris, Luxembourg Garden, row along the river of Seine by a river bus, meeting with Berel Lazar near the badly known kosher shop of Hyper Cacher, where all participants of the trip recognized the memory of people who perished in the terroristic act on January, 9. Moreover, we have had time to participate in all these events for four days! In addition, for these days we have had time to meet members of the French Jewish Youth Congress, eat about three tons of French kosher cheese, take it with crescent rolls and French sticks, visit antique synagogues, see a number of winding Paris streets and enjoy the atmosphere of spring Paris! Ah, how many positive emotions were experienced by all we and we have had time for it!

But this was not the finish of our travel, and the next point of our program was visiting of the concentration camp of Buchenwald, where we did a funeral rite. We were told of horrors of living of the POWs, and it reminded us that wounds of this tragedy had not yet been healed in our hearts. In addition, the latest city of our program was Berlin, which struck us with its good airs and originality of its architecture!

I was pleasantly surprised how much Jewish youth from various parts of Russia was striving after their roots and wants as more as possible of our traditions and commandments! All we are expected to have returned from the trip with a positive decision and more clear Jewish self-identification. I would like to say all girls and young men who for some reason or other have not participated in this project that we are waiting for you in September, in a new season of EuroStars!

Unusual Lag BaOmer

I keep in my mind our community to have celebrated Lag BaOmer going by a steamer and this year this holiday has been celebrated by having gone out our city. I even keep also in my mind that Lag BaOmer has once coincided with the Victory Day and we saw the firework from the streamer deck.

But such as it has been this year it had not ever been.

On May, 7 our school had a Topsy-turvy Day. Almost from the early morning there went for us kids of the kindergarten. We all together saw a little video and recited pesuchim. After that, the students went for a class in honor of this ancient Jewish holiday. The classes were given by students of seventh and eights forms for boys and girls from first to sixth ones. Moreover, the classes were prepared very good, were very interesting and with invention.

In addition, at the same time the visitors and the senior students went out of doors and amused there themselves. The little boys and girls were jumping on various trampolines, imagining them to be Spider men, competed who would jump higher on inflated toy horses, shooting with soft toy birds to funny soft figures… Surely kids of the kindergarten did not leave the school being empty-handed. Being led by senior students and tutors the former made very unusual articles and got nice balloons! Can’t be a festival without refreshments? They of course were too!

Exactly up to the moment after going out of the little boys and girls the student had finished their class and opened a contest between teams, green (boys) and yellow ones (girls) and this competition will be continue up to Shavuot. A deserved prize is set aside for the winner team.

Surely there were picnic, making articles, computer game, the game of Jolly balls.

Thanks for such festival!

Family Seminar at the Recreation Center of Sputnik

The period since March, 5 to March, 9, Nizhniy Novgorod was passed by Jewish families very usefully. Firstly, it was out of the city, secondly, in a pleasant company, and thirdly, they have know something new. To give the seminar of Life After Wedding they had invited the lecturer from Israel of Esther Ofenganden. The six informative lectures provoked great interest of the audience and disproved many postulates of modern family psychology.

The lectures alternated with walks about snowy winter forest, tobogganing, grill eating and tasty Shabbat meals. For the latter, one should individually thank our chief cook of Nina.

Our community arranged a seminar at the recreation center of Sputnik. We enjoyed seeing a recently built building very much where the kids sported and played indoor soccer. For giving lectures, the kids were helped keep occupied by young men and girls of our youth club.

At such seminars, there are always a lot of contacts between families, and our kids are friends from the cradle. The least participant of the seminar was only six! In addition, every time there is more families that are interested to visit the seminar. Then, it is time to get ready for the autumn seminar!
