HAG HANUKKAH Sameach!

  Mazal-Tov Program in Almaty Hesed Polina organized the celebration of Hanukkah. On 14 December more than 60 people came to the restaurant "Brno". They were not bored - stories about Hanukkah, quizzes and prizes, games and the performance created warm atmosphere of a big Jewish family. Yevgeniya Karyakina who is known and loved by young and adult readers of Hesed Library, tell a fairy tale about Hanukkah "Lights going out". After that all guests under her direction learnt a new song about Hanukkah and sang it all together.

  Questions of the Quiz were not difficult for the children because they study the history and tradition on Shabbats, in study groups of Community Center and in the library meetings. They were giving answers in chorus! And that child, who first raised hand, got a prize. Nobody left without a present. And besides prizes all children got traditional money - "hanukkeh-gelt".

  Everybody liked the mini-performance "Lively Hanukkiya". And except of traditional holiday candles there was "children' Hanukkiya - 9 children (who can read) read poems, sang songs about the Holiday of Light and Freedom.
