“To the best city – our love”!

Our community has been participating for the second year in the celebration of the Day of Sumy under this motto.

From 11 a.m. until 2 p.m., we held an entertaining and charity show for the people of Sumy at the Kharitonenko square near Altanka. The program included a photo exhibition about our activities, several master classes on Jewish dance, a delicious treat of traditional Jewish strudel (it was cooked by our amazing cook Galinskaya Rita Semenovna).

There was a big queue to our face-painting artist (volunteers Liza Chasnyk, Nastya Konechnaya and Galya Zyuzina). Children wanted very much to turn into a butterfly, spiderman or pirate …

And in Altanka, there was organized a masterclass on spot painting guided by our needlewoman Lena Gavrishenko. Young Sumy citizens and their parents decorated hamsa and magendavid (by the way, there was also available the information about the history of these ancient symbols).

During the event, the vocal studio “Aviv” played Jewish music and songs.

We attached a large sheet of drawing paper on a bench and people could write their wishes and congratulations for the city, the citizens of Sumy and the country.

In addition, our good friends and partners of the “Virtus” fitness center took part in the program, dancing hot zumba. Energetic Liza and Arkady Sherstyuki hosted our show.

Many thanks to everyone who took part in organizing and holding our event – the Kochavim Youth Club, staff and volunteers of the Charitable Foundation Hesed Haim and all our nice and caring citizens.

19 volunteers took part in the city action.
