Rosh Hashanah in Kazan - a spectacular holiday with big celebration/on a grand scale and the start of the new season of the youth club.

We all know that in Judaism there are 4 new years. Just a week ago, Jews around the world celebrated one of these holidays - Rosh Hashanah and wished each other a good and sweet year, and also a happy record and sentence in the book of life. Kazan teenage club “Among its own” did not stand aside and, as always, celebrated this holiday on a grand scale.

For the new year, the guys timed the long-awaited opening of the new season. And although events at the club have been going in full force for a month, it has become a good tradition for children to combine the opening of the season with New Year. The guys celebrated this day outdoors on the territory of a country recreation center with friends. It was very pleasant to realize that in addition to the regular members of the club, new guys came to the event.

The teenagers prepared an entertainment program for all the guests: the task of the participants was to prepare their community (each team has its own) for the celebration of Rosh Hashanah. The guys earned money by completing tasks, invited people and bought products for a festive meal. So, in a playful way, the participants got acquainted with the customs and traditions of the Rosh Hashanah holiday and just received a lot of pleasure and positive. After the game,  a small buffet table and sincere conversations were expected to the teenagers.

From an interview with one of the participants of the event:

“I was always amazed by friendly atmosphere that  presents at all events. Today there was a rivalry between the communities, who will complete all the tasks and win. But despite the competition, everyone was very friendly and tried to help each other! I think this is the most correct attitude to the new season, and it will definitely be even better and more productive than the previous! ”

Teenage Club “Sredi svoih” wishes everyone a Happy 5780 Year  and wishes Shana Tova Umetuka! Happy new year and good sentence!
