FAMILY CLUB "SHALOM"

The Head is Sarra Dotsenko.

  Jewish Community Center organized Family Club in summer 2000. It was "born" in a very unusual way: it hadn't been born yet but already had been enrolled in Summer Family Camp. There in the camp, situated in a very beautiful recreation zone near Almaty, Lekhaim was founded. 30 families (about 110 people) gathered under one roof and gave this name to Family Club.

Celebration of Shabbat in Family Club  The head of the Club, Ida Utigaliyeva, is musician by profession, and she combines her work for Jewish Community Center with the work in conservatory. She believes that Jewish music and songs help people feel without any words that they are Jews. The Family Club program includes studying song in Hebrew and Yiddish. And, of course, it is only a small part of "Lekhaim" project.
Family Club cooperates with others: Women's Club "Ruth", Youth Club and with the Center of Children Art.

  On 29 October 2000 First Exhibition of Children Art was opened. The Family Club together with the Center of Children Art prepared it. There were more than 50 paintings.
  Together with other clubs of JCC Family Club celebrated Sukkot.

  During winter holidays between 2-7 January 2001 children and their parents gathered again in the Family camp. All 5 five days in the camp were busy, full of sport and art programs. Interesting thing that the number of families participating increased from 30 to 47 (total 122 people) in comparison with summer camp. Children were divided into 4 groups according their age, now the number of group increased to 8. 5 camp counselors and 9 volunteers helped JCC and Hesed Polina in organizing winter camp.

  There is new tradition in our Club - Winter Family Camp. See reportage about family camp "Winter 2002"!
