Nisan 5784
Before leaving one's place of residence, it is customary to hold a Hasidic farbrengen and receive a farewell blessing from one's friends. As the saying goes, "Hasidim do not say goodbye. None of them ever leaves another. Wherever they are, they are one family."

New events of the month
STL-Time at Jewish Lyceum №144 dedicated to 11 Nisan.
For all students, 5 stations with various thematic tasks were prepared:
Tzedakah, Tefillin, Farbrengen, Ahlote Tova (good decision), Torah study.

For participating in all stations, children received a colorful cake decoration. When they had collected all the ingredients, they used them to make a bright and delicious cake for the Rebbe.
Preparation of STARS students for Passover
In March, students began a four-week preparation for the Passover holiday. The boys are studying Lashon HaKodesh – the holy language. It is the language of prayers and Torah, through which the Almighty spoke to the Jews at Mount Sinai and addressed the prophets.

During one lesson, the girls learn to read texts – something they will do at the Seder. In addition, following the laws of Passover, they celebrated Rosh Chodesh, and the "Rosh Chodesh Club" meeting for girls was dedicated to the month of Nisan. And, of course, with the arrival of this spring month, everyone blessed the blossoming trees.

The boys in class prepared to lead the Passover Seders.

Also, during lessons, we discussed historical events that formed the basis of the Exodus, and examined the history of the holiday.

Then, we moved on to the laws, traditions, and customs of Passover. Studying the Shulchan Aruch, we, together with the students, gradually delved into the main concepts of the holiday and learned the commandments of Passover, simulating situations from our own lives and developing ways of action necessary to fulfill these mitzvot.

And finally, just before the holiday, our students went on a tour to a matzah bakery.
The "Rosh Chodesh Club"
On Rosh Chodesh of the month of Nisan, the club organized a gathering that resonated with all the girls, as they engaged in "girl magic" activities.

It was a heartfelt and very positive gathering with delicious treats, a friendly atmosphere, heart-to-heart conversations, and a girly masterclass. The girls decided to treat themselves by making their own organic lip gloss. All the girls enjoyed themselves and appreciated the useful "souvenir," which they promptly tested and joyfully embraced.

One of the most important outcomes of the education provided to students at "STARS Dnipro" is that both young men and women have become more observant of the commandments of the Almighty. Moreover, such informative and entertaining gatherings, where one can not only learn something new but also take a break from everyday life and studies and treat oneself, undoubtedly benefit the girls. They were energized and inspired for the entire month, had a good time, and spent quality time in wonderful company.
