Shabbaton "Passover Sheni" for youth

Shabaton was held in Dnipro on Pesach Sheni, thanks to the help of the Jewish community of Dnipro together with Stars Ukraine, for Jewish youth aged 16 to 29 years. More than forty people from Dnipro and other cities of Ukraine took part in it.

Friday's program included a lesson from Khaya Maltseva, a master class on making candles for Avdala, lots of games and communication, and, of course, wonderful evening meals in Jewish families. We thank the Kaminetsky, Segal, Nakhshon and Shufotinsky families for their hospitality and warmth.

On Saturday, our participants, together with the entire community, took part in prayers and a meal that took place at the Menorah Center, and until the end of Shabbat, we enjoyed board games, walked around the city and rested. After the completion of the Avdala ceremony, which separated Saturday from weekdays, at which many handmade candles were lit, we began an incendiary party - Melave Malka, which did not end until almost morning.

It was a great honor for our participants to meet with the Chief Rabbi of Dnipro, Reb Shmuel Kaminetsky, where he shared with us many motivating ideas on how to succeed in life, career and relationships with people.

The third day of Shabaton was also full of pleasant moments. A lesson for girls with Tzipora Shufotinskaya gave us the mood for the approaching Lag Ba Omer holiday. And then we went to nature, to a pleasant picturesque place, where we treated ourselves to barbecue and other delicious food, talked, played sports, studied and enjoyed the beautiful spring in the Dnipro.

Our guests were very satisfied with Shabaton and can't wait for the next youth projects.

Many thanks to the Jewish community of Dnipro and the organization "Stars Ukraine" for all their support and assistance in the implementation of this Shabaton.

Day Camp 5783
In Dnipro, thanks to the help of the Jewish Community of Dnipro, together with the organization "Jewish Relief Network Ukraine" (JRNU) and with the support of "SmartJ", within the framework of the "Young DJC" movement, a children's day camp is being held, called "Kingdom of J-Kingdom" for Jewish children aged 6 to 12.

Our camp is held within the declared theme "Kingdom of J-Kingdom"
We study the wisdom of King Shlomo, what he said about life, about how a person should act in certain areas, because it is said in the Torah that the Almighty created the world and gave it to people as Kings to rule in it . Of course, we must rule wisely, as Kings, who must make every effort for the prosperity of their kingdom, so we must improve our world, and this is what we teach. Every day we have Jewish lessons on how to properly relate to the world that the Almighty gave us, and how he wants us to rule his world.

The camp program includes lessons in Jewish traditions, a variety of workshops and activities, beautiful events, outdoor walks, games, dances and much more, which makes the rest of our pupils not only fun and joyful, but also educational. We also have trips to entertainment centers, most recently we visited a children's golf club and went to the cinema.

Every day in the camp, children have a large and rich program, competitions in active games, the joy of drawing valuable prizes and communication in a friendly company.

More than 50 children have registered for our camp!
