Chanukah Celebrations Lit Up Our Communities in Israel and Around the World
Chanukah Celebrations lit up our communities in Israel and around the world. Hundreds of Chanukiyot lit up the Former Soviet Union: Our Chanukah report starts in St. Petersburg, Russia, where Rabbi Rubinstein led a celebration with close to 100 participants, including the Consul General of Israel in St. Petersburg, Eduard Shapira, the Head of the Jewish Agency in St. Petersburg and the North-West region, the Head of the JDC in St. Petersburg and North-West region, Dubi Rodman-Barkai, Head of the Council of International Relations, Anatoly Palamarchuk, Chairman of the Community of Baruch Rothschild, and conversion classes students. The community studied the concepts of miracles. An animation class, led by Alla Mitelman, Community Program Director, presented their “Eight Moments of Winter” video (click here for YouTube clip) about Chanukah, singer Konstantin Kotelnikov led the community in Chanukah song and the Shatil children's center also held a party (see photo album).  more...
