Adar I 5784
The mind and emotions - they are two worlds:
[the first one:] cold and balanced, [while the second one:] boiling and swift.
The task of a person is to unite THEM together. And then: swiftness will turn into determination, and rationality will guide the way in Service and actions.

Shabbaton Rosh Chodesh Adar for teenagers
Shabbatons for teens are back again!

After a break, we made a convention in Dnipro for children from 13 to 16 years old and chose the dates of Rosh Chodesh Adar I, to start adding to the joy with children immediately on Shabbaton.
The program included: lessons, prayers, Torah reading, meals in STL and visiting, avdalah, events, games, workshop and outings
In general, we did not waste a second and all the children not only fully observed Shabbat, but also received a charge of energy and cool emotions for a long time to come.
At the end of the Shabbaton, the two most active teenagers won vouchers to the European Shabbaton from our partners Cteen, which will be held this year.

Purim katan for the youth
The Purim Katan holiday for the participants of STARS Dnipro, a non-formal education project for young people supported by STL, was held in the style of a spy party. This format was liked by everyone without exception and the participants did not hide their positive emotions. Joy was present throughout the whole festive evening.
In the first part of the program guests were served buffet, followed by a lesson with the teacher Aliza Rabinovich, and in the second part of the party the youth of "STARS Dnipro" played a role-playing detective "Spy".
Bar Mitzvah Organization
We are always happy to help children have a dream holiday, and this month we had a double cause for joy because our tinsel, Nikita Vitynnyk, celebrated his Bar Mitzvah!
There was both an official part of the holiday, which included a video of the Rebbe, tzedokah, brochos from the birthday boy and lechaim from the guests, and an entertaining part, where everyone had a lot of fun, playing various contests and winning prizes. And the end was a birthday cake and a gift from our organization.
We wish Nikita to become a better version of himself every day and to walk confidently on the path of Torah and commandments!
