При поддержке World Jewish Relief в мае в рамках проекта «Активное долголетие» состоялось 4 встречи, на которых представительницы золотого возраста нашей общины нашли себе занятие по душе. У участниц всегда есть работа, так как о нас уже знают многие члены общины и обращаются за помощью: подшить, перешить что-то для уюта своего дома или осуществить ремонт одежды. В мае пошили 14 наволочек, 3 пододеяльника, 5 простыней, 40 кухонных полотенец, 4 фартука, 2 подушки, которые набили синтепоном. А также осуществляли мелкий ремонт одежды. Эти встречи очень нравятся нашим женщинам, так как они могут реализовывать себя. И конечно, это повод пообщаться! Все участницы данного направления благодарят за такую возможность еженедельно собираться в мастерской и проводить время с удовольствием! #WJR #HesedTiraspol

Our representatives of the silver age are not used to being bored, so last Sunday evening they attended a concert of the vocal and instrumental cover of the Drive band. The incendiary rhythms of well-known melodies in the original performance did not leave anyone indifferent in the hall. Performances were accompanied by bright numbers of invited dance groups. The holiday of music and dances has become a beautiful gift for Hesed clients for the Great Shavuot. #JDC #HesedTiraspol

On Shavuot, it is customary to make bouquets and wreaths that decorate houses and synagogues. Therefore, the topic of today's MK is flowers. Representatives of the older generation made flowers from foamiran, and also got acquainted with the properties of this new material. A volunteer within the Volunteer Center RVC project "Needlewomen" taught how to make flowers, and the participants offered ideas for using this skill. In addition to wreaths for the holiday, you can make a brooch - your favorite, decorate a hoop or hairpins for your granddaughter, make a beautiful panel or create a unique piece of furniture or a small bouquet for a friend. A positive mood and smiles were our companions during the MC, and the result in the form of a flower meadow pleased everyone, because everyone was able to learn how to make several flower options. #HesedTiraspol #RVC

Tonight, May 25, begins one of the most important holidays in Jewish culture - Shavuot! It was on this day, seven weeks after Pesach, that the Torah (Pentateuch) was given to the Jews. On the 50th day after the Exodus from Egypt, the Jews approached Mount Sinai, and there an agreement was concluded with the Almighty, which included the fulfillment of the commandments and the spread of knowledge about God throughout the world. It has become a kind of moral law, according to which it is proper to live. There, on Mount Sinai, the Jews received as a gift the Torah, which remains the main book of the people of Israel to this day. Like many other Jewish holidays, Shavuot celebrates not only a certain historical event, but also the onset of a new season of the year, the completion of another agricultural cycle. Shavuot was celebrated at the beginning of the wheat harvest season. This is the last of the three pilgrimage feasts. On Shavuot, it is customary to decorate synagogues with greenery, and a festive meal necessarily includes dairy and flour foods: cheese, cottage cheese, sour cream, pancakes with cottage cheese, pies, cakes, cakes with honey, pies. This custom dates back to the day the Torah was given. Since then, paying tribute to the past, only dairy is eaten on Shavuot. On the great holiday of Shavuot, we sincerely congratulate you and wish you a righteous and happy life without obstacles and enemies, good deeds and good goals, sincere prayers and strong faith, a joyful and bright mood, generous gifts of nature and a rich table, pure love and respect! HAG SHAVUOT SAMEAH! #JDC #HesedTiraspol
