Two years ago, Latvia found out about AJT and they became friends. So far it is difficult to notice us, as we became AJT participants not so long ago, but we are trying to understand traditions and structure of AJT and every year we take a bigger and bigger part in AJT life. What we are really grateful to AJT, it is for projects.
May 3-5, as a part of AJTravel project the teens club “Haverim” from Chisinau city, came to Dnipro. Teens from “Shahar” were getting ready for this meeting and were looking forward to the meeting. The program was full of sessions and excursions which teens prepared by themselves.
April 26-28 the teenager club «Kohavim», Sumy city, visited teens club Be Jewish Krivoy Rog as a part of a program AJTravel. Youngsters from both clubs were getting ready for this trip for a few months. There was an active program arranged for them – acquainting the club, club’s projects, Jewish Krivoy Rog, its interesting places and sessions by participants.
The project by Lilya Muhamedishina “Cooking battles” started in September 2018. Since that moment there had been a lot of different meetings and covered all different generations. We tried to compete between boys and girls, who cooks scrambled eggs better. On Hannukkah Day, this project helped us to learn traditional Hannukkah dishes – latkes and donuts. We competed in baking pastries and other routine things.
On March 28-31, the AJT seminar MOLDOVA took place in the suburbs of Chisinau city, where teenagers from 4 cities participated: Chisinau (YC HAVERIM), Bălți (YC PikaJew), Tiraspol and Rîbnița. The 4 days program was quite loaded with sessions about leadership and informal education principals. Every participant of the seminar had an opportunity to show their team and organizing skills, and graduates – to prepare the evening event.
