  Jewish Community of Ust-Kamenogorsk City celebrated Purim in cafe "Parthenon". There were 320 members of the City Jewish Community. Every visitor got a carnival mask and rattle. Some adults and children were wearing costumes of Mordekhay and Ester - the main heroes of the holiday. Singing traditional song "Pur, pur, purim" opened the holiday. The ensemble of violinists accompanied the song. Yelena Levina, Director of the Community Center and Vladimir Lebedev, Director of Hesed Faina made speeches, congratulated everybody with the holiday and thanked JDC and "Mitsva" Association.

  Naum Stuchevskiy, The Chairman of the Board made Kiddush for wine before the meal. The meal started after his speech and the toast "Lekhaim". Irina Khardina accompanied the meal with Purim song. There were a lot of melodies of our favorite Jewish songs, dances, competitions, quizzes and games ("Get Amman's ear from flour without hands", for example). The members of the Community prepared a few tricks: Grigoriy Gorelik, the client of Hesed, read a funny story and volunteer Olga Tokhtarova played o role of aunt Sonya from Odessa.

  As usual Hesed volunteers helped a lot in preparation for the holiday.

  Generally speaking the holiday passed successfully. Holidays like this helps us to understand how friendly is Jewish Community in Ust-Kamenogorsk City.
