The Jewish community of Rostov, headed by Rabbi Chaim and Kaila Danzinger, hosted 3 Purim parties, insuring a maximum amount of people had the opportunity to participate in the mitzvos of Purim.
The main Purim party was held in Rostov’s Cantonist Shul, and was attended by families and children of all ages. The event’s highlight was a musical titled “Purim International” performed by students of Rostov’s Or Avner Jewish Day School. Following Megillah reading, the crowd was entertained by a fascinating Mad Science show by Professor Nikolai.
For over 100 students, a trendy cafe was rented out, where the students enjoyed a full sushi meal, with a fun and entertaining program which included megilla reading, games, prizes and ended off with a beautiful farbrengen which continued well into the night.
Classes in school were cancelled, and instead Or Avner students enjoyed a day of Purim celebrations.
Purim ended with a community wide sit down purim seuda with lots of joy and dancing and hopes that next year Purim will be celebrated in Yerushalayim.
