Of The Jewish Confederation Of Ukraine
In Brief ...
The first in Ukraine festival of Hasidic art under a symbolic name "Alia shel Hasidim" ("Hasidic spring") was held in Kharkov. An entire layer of this original and rich culture has emerged over three centuries' existence of this branch of Judaism.
Everything began when the director of community and club programs Yevgenia Kalinina presented the head of a "Menorah" dance group Yana Kondakova with the invitation to an All-Ukrainian festival of Jewish art (city of Kiev) "Shalom Ukraine!" Being greatly impressed by the festival we, participants of the dance collective "Menorah", are eager to share our joy and to tell how many people have contributed to this victory.
