Hanukkah Ball is a Jewish Community project emphasizing the Community values, uniting young families and highlighting the Jewish traditions. This was a wonderful holiday, full of colors and creative ideas! This was an unforgettable experience for all participants and organizers who were equally happy.
Our volunteers, Youth Club members, the Rimon Jewish Community Center staff and management organized the events. Young Jewish Community leaders even shot a short film dedicated to Hanukkah.
The Hanukkah offsite seminar was held on December 23-25, 2016 and was accompanied by a number of exciting activities. On Friday evening, we made khanukiyahs, celebrated Shabbat, and listened to the lecture called The Story of Hanukkah delivered by Anna Sailyants, a wonderful teacher of Jewish history and traditions, also musicologist, who was one of the best students of the Republic of Kazakhstan. Then Inessa Chugaynova held a session called The Old Manuscript. After that we watched the video shot by our young leaders, entitled ‘The Light of Hanukkah’.
