Twenty of West Ukraine’s most needy Jewish teenagers celebrated their Bar & Bat Mitzvah, this Sunday, in a beautiful series of events hosted by the FJC’s ‘Alumim’ Children’s home in Zhitomir, Ukraine. Fun, attractions, gifts and a prestige dinner, were part of their big day.
Two groups of children participated in the events: deprived children now living in the Children’s home, and children gathered from the poorest villages and towns in the region. All the children were overwhelmed by the attention and love they received during the event and the great investment put into its success.
The grand dinner included dancing, video productions, original gifts and activities and warm words of blessings from dignitaries, rabbis and the “Lev Layeled” organization from France which sponsored the event. [nggallery id=160]
