Jewish Fall Holidays Festival
Every time during Jewish Fall Holidays the Minsk Jewish Campus looks somewhat special and home-like: life size puppets crowded by kids, clowns, Jewish craftsmen street with workshops, Jewish dancing, competitions and lotteries. In special stalls you will be told a lot about Jewish traditions and holidays, will be treated with Jewish cuisine and many more. Klezmer and Israeli music is heard in the MJC court; here you may even listen to the sounds of Shofar.
All the Jewish organizations of Minsk unite their efforts to make the holiday attractive for all generations. The festival is supported by Representative Office of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee in the Republic of Belarus.
Every year the number of Chanukkah festival lovers increases, so does the number of people who would like to participate in the festival’s gala. The festival has already become a brand and has outgrown into a remarkable event not only for the Jewish community, but also for the entire Belarus!
Chanukah festival is generously supported by the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee in the Republic of Belarus and the Union of Belarusian Jewish Associations and Communities.
Festival of Cantor Music
The Cantor Music Festival is a unique festival of Jewish spiritual music organized in Belarus which is held during Pesah, and is directly connected with the holiday's tradition to read Biblical Song of the Songs.
The Festival of Cantor Music is hosted by the Union of Progressive Judaism in Belarus and the JCC “Emunah”, and supported by the Union of Belarusian Jewish Associations and Communities and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee.
