Our clubs

In 2001 a group of active members of our Jewish community went to the family camp on the lake Svitiaz. After this vocation club "Iahad" ("Together") was founded. Larisa Karp proposed to organize club for those "who are over ..." in the community. She became his leader and creative mentor for 10 years. Interesting club meetings, full of news, music, video excerpts from films and plays, songs, poems, memories, anecdotes and even dancing started. Larisa Carp prepares a message with a video of the events in Israel for each meeting of the club. The club holds literary, musical and artistic meetings, which are devoted to outstanding figures of Jewish and world culture. Club members are not only spectators but also active authors of many meetings. Together "Iahadovtsy" meet not only the Jewish religious but also secular holidays and birthdays of the club’s members. In 2011, at the general meeting of club members, it was decided to assign responsibilities collectively. Tamara Bezvershuk became the head of the club. Larisa Karp directs the thematic part. Stella Shoihetman and Faina Samchuk led organizational part. Club members are active helpers in all endeavours of the Jewish community. They are volunteers and helpers in cleaning the community building and care of burial’s places of the Holocaust’s victims. It is worth to noting the vocal group of the club "Iahad" (head Olga Kozyrska). They perform not only on all the festive concerts of the community, but also at the events dedicated to the memory of Holocaust victims and at various city festivals. Vocal group visited Rivne, Lviv with concerts. Despite the fact, that in our community there are other interesting clubs and societies, but we have a lot of our members, who want to become one of the "Iahad". New interesting people come to the club and lives improved.

Club "TAPUZ" The club was organized for families with children up to 5 years. The first "meeting" took place in August 2003. The orange (little bright toy) has prompted the idea to name the club for the kids "Tapuz" (Orange). During the meetings, the kids were playing, talking, learn to be friends, and parents discussed the different life situations, solve common problems, talked about the issues of education. The meetings were held in the clubroom on the first floor, and indoors, we went to the zoo and swing. After repairs in a building club "Tapuz" meets on the 3rd floor of the building. Now volunteer Nastia Horetskaia holds classes at the club. Families meet once a week. No one set out to count the number of meetings held over the years, but the guys, who was first visitors, are active members of the club "Cita Bahir" ("seniors") now and some of them is graduating school this year.

Youth club of our community has existed since 2000. Over the years, it changed for 4 generations of our youth. At first, the guys gathered under the auspices of the organization "Sochnut", and later there was a youth club, then it was the club "Netzer". Now, the youth club "Cita Bahir" gathers 16 children from 11 to 16 years. Club meetings are held in our comfortable house, our community centre. Every Saturday young people get together: sing, dance, learn Hebrew, learn more Jewish traditions, share their impressions. Besides these meetings, children participate in various actions and events, which are held in our community: in the projects of "Memory" and "Shabbat boxing" family camps, youth SHABBATON, theater performances and concerts. In 2015, the guys were the most active participants in two small grants "On the wave of Jewish" and "Reconstruction of the Bar - Kochba". The club helps young people to develop and realize their talents. All the activities of the club is aimed at educating children human values. We want to help children not only to become a full-fledged personality, but also learn to live for others.
