On 27-29th of June the number of events dedicated to familiarization of citizens of Lviv with the culture and traditions of Israel took place in Lviv, at the Honorary Consulate of the State of Israel in Western Ukraine.

First event was the gathering of “Taglit” Group.

“Taglit” is educational project, which aims to enchase young Jews from the Diaspora to study Jewish culture and Jewish heritage, to support and develop national consciousness, to acquaint young people with life of modern Israel. The project is being financed by Jewish Communities and the government of Israel. The participants of the project are young Jewish people, aged 18 – 26. The project provides to the participants of the group free 10-days tour to Israel with professional guides.

During previous years citizens of Lviv had to join Kyiv or Odessa group. This year a separate group of Western Ukraine “Taglit” was gathered for the first time due to the Honorary Consulate. This Group will visit Israel via direct flight Lviv-Tel-Aviv-Lviv

The second pleasant surprise from the Honorary Consulate of the State of Israel for citizens of Lviv was a master class of Israeli dance.

The weekend was finished by a meeting of Jewish Women Club “Aviv”.

The similar cultural events at the territory of the Honorary Consulate of the State of Israel will take place on the regular basis.

We hope that such events will give an opportunity to enchase young people of Lviv to get familiar with the culture and traditions of Israel and to provide the possibility to Jewish public organizations for further diversification of their activity.
