HAG HANUKKAH Sameach!

  Hanukkah in Uralsk City started from candle lightening and reading prayers. On Sunday December 9, 2001 Uralsk Jewish Community came to the decorated hall and lit the first candle dedicated to the Miracle of Temple. Hesed volunteers reminded about tradition of the Holiday and all the children were given whipping tops and told how to play with them.

  Children studying in Jewish Community Center had prepared a holiday concert program; they read poems and sang songs. Children danced a dance called "Dror" ("Sparrow"). The audience enjoyed the dance with candles very much and started dancing with "sparrow baby birds".

  The employees of the Community Center went to celebrate Shabbat in Fyodorovka Village - suburb of Uralsk City. There are many Jewish families live there and celebrating Hanukkah is a chance for them to learn more about Jewish History and Tradition.
