Purim-5783: festive evening in the project "Stars Dnepr"

On the evening of Purim, a large festive program was prepared for the students of Stars Dnepr, a project of the Jewish Community of Dnipro in the field of non-formal education for youth, supported by STL, to which students of the International Humanitarian Pedagogical Institute "Beit Khana" could join.

In honor of this wonderful holiday, our entire space was decorated and divided into zones, except for the buffet, there was a photo zone, since many guys came, as expected, in carnival costumes, they were able to capture themselves as a keepsake. We also separated the area where the scroll of Megillat Esther was read. And before the beginning of the reading, the teacher of our project Tsipora Shufotinskaya held a short lesson for our students, reminding them of the laws and rules of how to listen to the Megillah so that they know what blessings are read, what needs to be repeated, and where it is necessary to make noise.

Then the guys arranged a whole master class, where everyone was able to assemble their own Mishloach Manot, decorating it correctly and preparing it for presentation the next day.

The festive evening was very fun and interesting, the guys were able to properly celebrate Purim, but they also learned a lot of new and useful things.

Participants of the "Kids" program saw with their own eyes how matzah is made
On the eve of the Pesach holiday, the participants of “Kids”, a program in the field of non-formal education within the framework of the “Young DJC” movement in the Jewish community of Dnipro, went on an excursion to the “Tiferet Matzot” matza-bakery.

Our Kids visited the matza-bakery, because Pesach is a holiday for which you need to prepare especially carefully and in advance, so immediately after Purim we began to gradually immerse our children in the theme of the upcoming holiday.

We got on the buses and went to watch how matzah is being prepared. It was very exciting, we were shown all the processes, from kneading the dough to packing the finished matzah into boxes. The bakery workers are wonderful and friendly people who were happy to tell the most curious about their work and about the laws of kashrut in this area.

The excursion to the matza-bakery gave a lot of impressions, and, most importantly, prompted the children to ask a lot of questions about matzah and the holiday itself, and it’s good that we still have time to answer them and meet Pesach with a full piggy bank of knowledge.
Preparation for Passover of students "Stars"
The last lesson was held in preparation for the Passover holiday “Stars Dnepr”, a project of the Jewish Community of Dnipro in the field of non-formal education for youth, supported by STL.

The last lesson on preparation for Passover for the participants of our project passed, during the whole month the guys studied very hard and prepared for this important holiday.

And we are proud to say that all our students are ready for Passover - eleven of them went to the Passover camp in Zakarpatiye to fully immerse themselves in the atmosphere of kosher Passover, and some of the guys are preparing to be leaders at community seders to help members of the Jewish community Dnipro correctly complete all the stages of the Passover Order.
Youth Passover camp in Zakarpattya
Students of Stars Dnipro, a project of the Jewish Community of Dnipro in the field of non-formal education for youth, supported by STL, took part in the Passover camp, called "Pessach Retreat Ukraine The Year of Hakhel 5783", which was organized by "Stars Ukraine" with the support of "Yahad" and JRNU, held in Transcarpathia.

STARS students visited the youth camp for Passover. They had a wonderful time in the very heart of the Carpathians together with Jewish youth from other cities of Ukraine.

For eight days of Passover we were in wonderful company, a beautiful place with great food, interesting lessons and activities. The participants arrived close to the beginning of the holiday and immediately plunged into its atmosphere. Two seders, festive prayers, a pleasant and sincere Shabbat - they very much united all the participants.

And in Chol HaMoed, students traveled and got acquainted with the beautiful landscapes of our Carpathians, participated in games and events in the evenings, organized parties themselves and much more, which made this Pesach unforgettable!
