A LOT, A DESTINY AND A VICTORY...

  Talmud says that when Adar month comes our merriment increases. Most likely old sages meant the merriest Jewish Holiday Purim by that. During Purim we remember the events that took place in centuries-old times. The holiday reminds us that even we live in different part of the world we are united with our life style defined by Torah. And when Jews keep within Torah's commandments nothing could stop us: neither governments nor people. Hesed "Rachel" and Jewish Center "Habad Lyubavich" wished everybody happy Purim. Those people who came to celebrate Purim were presented beautiful post cards with graters.

  Children smiles, laugh, costumes and running about reminded us about the purpose of the holiday.

  Naturally Rabbi Samuel Karnaukh was in the center of attraction; and when he started reading the Ester's Roll everybody became very quiet and could hear and understand every single world. Time to time when Aman's name was pronounced, the audience burst with loud laugh. And everybody was listening attentively to Ester's words, which have been repeated for thousand years.

  After reading Ester's Roll Irina Tveritneva Director of Community Center reminded the history of Purim and announced the beginning of Purimshpil.

  "Ding-dong! Ding-dong! We're starting our show! Shalom!" - with these words personages of Megila ran into the stage. The children showed a comic show. There was a stupid tsar Ahashverosh (Casha Belous) and beautiful Ester (Lenochka Sidorovskaya), and wise Mordekhay (Styepa Mikhailenko). And when a spiteful Aman (Stas Yevseyev) came to the stage all audience stamped their feet simultaneously and cracked with the rattles. After that Ester accused Aman in all misdeeds and Ahashverosh ordered to hang him. And the scarecrow of Aman was taken to the stage; the hall was full of noise, the audience was yelling and whistling. At the end of Purimshpil people sang songs "Ani Purim", and "Hag Purim".

  After that an evening meal with congratulations started. And everywhere you could hear people laughing, joking and singing Jewish songs. And when the music stopped rabbi Shmuel came to the stage and all Community started clapping.

  Mordekhay and Ester told Jews to celebrate Purim every year and never forget how sorrow and weeping turned to victory and happiness.
