November was an interesting month for all participants in the “Beauty and Comfort” direction. This month there were 4 unforgettable meetings that filled the hearts of the participants with joy and inspiration. But that is not all! Our irreplaceable partners have given us so many valuable materials. The Odema factory generously provided us with huge bags of padding polyester, and Intercentrelux shared with us not only the rag, but also accessories and threads. The goal of our project is not only to create beauty and comfort, but also to stimulate and encourage the employment of older people. We strive to strengthen their internal resources, help them become emotionally stable and socialized. After all, this is exactly what our elderly community members need so much. And what pleases us most is that our elderly participants attend every event with great pleasure. Their faces transform when they see how their work and creativity bring joy and comfort to other people. During 4 meetings, more than 20 seats and 10 pillows were made; in addition, clothing was repaired and all sorts of little things were sewn: handbags, potholders, towels, napkins. We give what the project participants sew to our community members for their birthdays, give it to those in need, and help repair clothes for those who need it. At the last meeting in November, our needlewomen had the opportunity to learn how to weave keychains using MK; this became a kind of gift for their work. Pleasant little things made with your own hands will remain a wonderful reminder of this day. We are grateful to World Jewish Relief for their support and belief in our project. We would like to express our deep gratitude to Odema and Intercentrelux for their generosity and kindness. They made our event possible and gave our senior participants the chance to reach their potential and bring joy to others. #WJR #HesedTiraspol
The other day, Hesed hosted a celebration of November birthday people and anniversaries. The event has traditionally become a truly family holiday, with gifts, feasts, intimate conversations and interesting guests. This time, the young poetess Ksenia Zholumskaya came to congratulate the birthday people, who read her poems on the topic of family and love. Those gathered also discussed the upcoming holiday of Hanukkah, its main symbols and traditions, were charged with positive emotions in a win-win quiz, talked a lot and joked. The project “Mazal tov, Anniversaries” once again emphasizes that every member of the community is dear to us! The birthday people received not only their congratulations and memorable gifts from Hesed, but most importantly - our attention and care! #JDC #Hesedtiraspol
A delightful event took place in Rybnitsa, and Hesed’s elderly clients cannot hide their delight! Thanks to the wonderful volunteers at the RVC Volunteer Center, they were able to attend the La Boheme event and enjoy a wonderful concert performed by the State Symphony Orchestra. November 24th became a special day for our viewers; the magical sounds of music filled their hearts with joy and happiness. It was an autumn evening, when the soul asks for comfort and warmth, and the concert was exactly what was needed. Elderly clients of Hesed enjoyed every note, every chord, as if plunging into a world of harmony and beauty. The entire hall was filled with the energy of the music and the admiration of the audience. This event showed that age does not matter when it comes to enjoying art. Elderly people, thanks to volunteers and the La Boheme project, had the opportunity to plunge into the world of music and experience indescribable emotions. Such events are possible thanks to the funding of JDC Kishinev, which has been carried out in the territory of Transnistria, including in the city of Rybnitsa, for more than one decade. State Symphony Orchestra - brought joy and happiness to our elderly clients. Their smiles, mood and gratitude are the best confirmation of this. This evening was made possible thanks to the help of volunteers who organized a visit to the concert, which will be remembered for a long time and will leave a mark in the heart of everyone who witnessed this wonderful event. #RVC #HesedTiraspol

The happy faces of our women shone with joy and gratitude for the wonderful concert dedicated to Mother's Day, which they attended today. It was a concert filled with love and warmth. Every note, every chord evoked a storm of emotions in them. They sang along and applauded, not containing their delight.

Today was a special day, full of emotions and impressions! Volunteer Center RVC volunteers again covered the distance and gathered with members of our community in the city of Grigoriopol. Shabbat is not just a day off for Jews, it is a time when they give up ordinary everyday activities and devote it to God and communication with loved ones. On this day we came together to share joy and support each other. Natalia Britova, our wonderful hostess, lit the Shabbat candles and read the blessings. Then we sat down to eat and began to chat, discussing news and events in the community. It was so nice to see the smiles on the faces of everyone present, to feel the warmth and friendly atmosphere. But, of course, we could not forget about the events of Kristallnacht. On this day, we remembered the tragedy that occurred many years ago and paid tribute to the memory of those killed. ....And then the moment came when each of us began to talk about our life moments. The evening was truly a celebration of memories as we laughed, cried and shared our stories. We became even closer to each other and had a wonderful time enjoying pleasant communication. #RVC #JDC #Hesedtiraspol #volunteers #Shabbat #support #community #memories #friendship
Today in Hesed we remembered the difficult events of 85 years ago... We lit candles in memory of the victims... On the night of November 9-10, 1938, the Nazi regime organized a wave of anti-Semitic pogroms in Germany. This event is known as the Night of Broken Glass or Kristallnacht. It owes its name to the glass from broken shop windows that littered the streets after the attacks. The event was coordinated by Nazi leaders with the knowledge of Adolf Hitler. Nazi paramilitary units (SS, SA and Hitler Youth) were ordered to carry out attacks on Jewish communities. During the pogrom, they burned and destroyed 267 synagogues, robbed buildings and shops belonging to Jews, breaking their windows, and desecrated Jewish schools, homes and hospitals. Under orders from Nazi leaders, police and firefighters ignored the attacks. Hundreds of Jews died during Kristallnacht, and after Kristallnacht the police rounded up 30,000 Jewish men and placed them in concentration camps. According to various estimates, up to 2 thousand people died as a result of the pogroms. Kristallnacht marks the transition from discrimination against the Jewish population to outright persecution. #JDC #Hesedclub
Today there was an event from the category “The eyes are afraid, but the hands are doing.” Our Volunteer Center RVC volunteers held “Key Rings” at the MK Day Center today. The participants encountered difficulties because it was difficult to weave knots: they had to remember which lace should be folded and where. Many statements were pessimistic, but already halfway through the work enthusiasm appeared and the result brought true pleasure. This event once again confirmed that with the support and help of the people around you, you can overcome any difficulties and achieve any goals. Together we create a better future and help people develop. We are pleased to see how participants show enthusiasm and find satisfaction in achieving results. This proves that every person is capable of overcoming their limitations and realizing their potential. Everyone went home with new keychains, satisfied and happy! If you want to become the happy owner of a handmade keychain, write or call. tel.77521135! Let's teach!!))) #RVC #HesedTiraspol
Today, at their regular Sunday meeting, our young juniors talked about the World Day of Jewish Knowledge, and also began a course of acting training under the guidance of an experienced teacher. The guys were treated to many different practices for emotional liberation, imagination, and team building. Laughter, fun, and that’s it, the kids got a new experience during the lesson and are already looking forward to something new! #JDC #AJTTIR #Hesedclub
On November 4, our theater-goers from among our clients of the silver age attended the main premiere of the new theater season, the play “Mozart and Salieri”. One of the dramatic plays included in the series “Little Tragedies” by A.S. Pushkin has acquired a new format. Pridnestrovian viewers were shown a rock musical for the first time. There was a lot of choreography and original compositions on stage. The modern interpretation did not leave anyone indifferent in the hall. The main director and performer of the role of Salieri, Dmitry Akhmadiev, is sure that theater should be new and fresh, should surprise and conquer. This is exactly what happened to the audience at the premiere. #JDC #Hesedtiraspol
Keep it up!👍👏🏆 The project works in Dubossary, Grigoriopol, Tiraspol, Dnestrovsk, Slobodzeya, Bendery. Thanks to World Jewish Relief for financial support of such a wonderful cause!
Today a wonderful event took place within the walls of Hesed - the presentation of the book by Ostafiy Maina Iosifovna - our client! Everyone was in anticipation, because the autobiographical book promised to tell about the difficult fate of the author and her unshakable faith in miracles. Publisher Pavel Tereshin proudly presented the book to the public. The book describes the life difficulties that Maina Iosifovna had to face, but despite all the trials, she did not lose her love for life. Each page is filled with emotions, and the author remembers and experiences his years with warmth. Miracles accompanied the author throughout her life, and she believes that faith in them helped to overcome any difficulties. But let's not reveal all the plot twists of the book; we recommend that everyone read it for themselves. Our guest received many warm reviews about her book from those who managed to read it. Ovations, flowers, autographs and photographs as souvenirs became an integral part of this unforgettable event. The event was attended by the young poetess Ksenia, who, after reading the book, was inspired and wrote wonderful poems. She shared her creations with those present and it was a truly magical moment. The event left a lasting impression on all those present, and everyone left with a feeling of delight and inspiration. The life of Ostafiy Maina Iosifovna touched the hearts of many and everyone wanted to read her book in order to get to know the author and her experiences better. The event ended with tea and memorable gifts. Volunteers presented those present with calendars for the year 5784 from the volunteer center. Thanks to our Volunteer Center RVC volunteers for their help in organizing the event! #HesedTitaspil #JDC #RVC #book presentation
October is a month that filled life with incredible emotions and joy! Meetings within the “Beauty and Comfort” direction of the “Active Longevity” project have become weekly again, and it’s just wonderful! The participants in our project were incredibly happy, because they could again devote time to what they love to do, and most importantly, communicate with each other. This month our needlewomen created real miracles! In just 4 meetings, we sewed more than 15 pillowcases, more than 20 seats, 20 pillows and even a large blanket for outdoor recreation. Everyone did a great job, every stitch was done with love and care. But the most important thing is that the participants received a lot of positivity from communicating with each other and from the fact that we have the opportunity to help those who really need it. Our project has become a place where each participant can show their talents and skills, as well as give a piece of their heart to those around us. Many thanks for your financial support and faith in our idea of World Jewish Relief. Thanks to this help, we can do good deeds and bring joy to people. Your support is our strength, which helps us move forward and take small but significant steps towards a better world. #WJR #HesedTiraspol
🌿Today was a special day, full of emotions and deep memories. The volunteers of the Volunteer Center RVC, who gathered as part of the “Memory of Generations” project, again proved that love and care know no borders or nationalities. We gathered at the Jewish cemetery at the Holocaust Memorial to honor the memory of those who could not survive those terrible times. 🌿Our volunteer Marina Zaedinova provided us with beautiful chrysanthemums, which we planted with love and respect on this seemingly inhospitable and stony soil. But we didn't let that stop us. 🌿Every flower, every chrysanthemum has become a symbol of eternal memory. We want to express our deep gratitude to all the volunteers who took part in this event. You are real heroes who not only gave your time and energy, but also put your soul into every chrysanthemum planted. Thank you for your memory and your work! 🙏Let's remember the past, honor the memory and do everything possible to ensure that such horrors never happen again. 🙏Let's cultivate a sense of solidarity and compassion in ourselves and other people. Together we can change the world for the better. ⚡We are waiting for those who want to make the world a little bit kinder to join our ranks! ☎️Tel.77521135 -Anna (RVC coordinator) #RVC # HesedTiraspol #JDC
The next Sunday meeting of our children's club was filled with creativity, fun, dancing and a lot of positive emotions. The children attended a creative master class, where they were able to show their imagination and various arts and crafts skills. The active dance block lifted even the shyest juniors from their seats. After all, this is what we are going for - to reveal creative potential, enrich ourselves with knowledge and be replenished with new impressions! We will have enough energy and good mood until our next meeting! #AJTTIR #Hesedclub #JDC
In October, “ABC of the Internet” classes for seniors began again at Hesed, and it’s just wonderful! 3 classes have already opened the door to the unknown for our clients. How important it is to be able to understand computers and the Internet in our time. These are not just necessary skills for a modern person, but also a real beneficial activity for our brain. It is wonderful to see older people embracing new technologies and becoming confident computer and internet users. This gives them the opportunity to keep abreast of all events, communicate with family and friends, gain new knowledge and even engage in their favorite hobbies. Each lesson in computer courses becomes a real adventure for representatives of the golden age. We wish you not to be afraid of new technologies, but, on the contrary, to discover with joy and interest all the opportunities that the modern world provides us. After all, age does not matter when it comes to development and learning. Thank you World Jewish Relief for your support!
