For 2 months, the children of our preschool have been diligently practicing for their performance in honor of Purim.
It was held on Shushan Purim, and it truly was amazing thing to be part of.
It was hard to believe that this was taking place in the Former Soviet Union. In fact, many of the parents don't know anything about Judaism, and their children are eagerly teaching them.
The children were so excited to be there, celebrating the holiday.
The looks on their faces as they proudly sang, danced and played to the theme of Purim was just precious.
The parents were, of course, super proud of their children.
They even got involved and played their own game, with the kids cheering them on.
All in all, it was a huge success, and parents and children alike are looking forward to the next performance.

Purim in Chernigov
Over 140 people came together for a beautiful Purim banquet.
And everyone in between
It was a beautiful collaboration between all the Jewish organizations in the city.
Our guest from England via New Jersey did a professional express reading of the Megillah.
And everyone agreed that it was the best Purim they experienced yet!
