PESACH!

  On 7 April 2001 Jewish Community of Astana City gathered in synagogue where Rabbi Yuda Kubalkin performed the first Pesach Seder. In spite of late evening, the members of the Community lighted candles according to tradition like our ancestors did more than 3000 years ago. Next day 200 members of the Community went to restaurant in the National Opera and Ballet Theatre named after Kulyash Baiseitova. That big amount of people we have never had before.

  The hall was decorated with Jewish symbolism, and the symbol of Pesach - Keara was on each table.

  Seder was started with candle lightening. Tatyana Alina the director of Hesed told the history of the holiday - the history of Jewish emancipation from slavery.

  The secular part of Pesach with the concert started after 4 traditional glasses of wine. The instrumental trio (students of Music Academy) of bayan, accordion and the violin, the National Ensemble "Rovesnik" performed dance "Khava Nagila" and pop dance "Mamba". The actress of the Russian Drama Theatre performed a fragment of the story by Efraim Sevela "Glasses". Yelena Maksnova read a fragment from her own poem "Address to an American woman" and it was dedicated to the peace all over the world. Maxim Turnov the alumni of Sunday school sang song in Hebrew, he was accompanied by brass band. Pasternak and Petrov, the members of the Community read their poems about the holiday.

  Children and adults took part in the quiz and they got their prizes for the knowledge of the history and National Tradition.
