Children Aided by Jewish Community of Brest

BREST, Belarus - The Jewish community of Brest, one of the largest population centers in Belarus, is introducing a new project that will benefit the younger generation. According to its Chairman, Boris Bruk, the community's new program is called "Children's Art" and targets children, aged between 8 and 13.

This initiative will involve experienced professional teachers, who are volunteering their time to spend with the kids. Participants will learn how to draw, dance, sing songs, as well as developing their other creative abilities. Over the past year, several different events were planned within the scope of this program, in which children very enthusiastically took part. It is for this reason that community leaders decided to introduce this program more intensively in Brest.

By the end of autumn, the Jewish community of Brest will be introducing an additional program for children, which will involve both physically-challenged children and healthy children. The plan and methodology for this particular program was developed by Galina Levina and pilot projects related to this have already been carried out in other cities of Belarus, including Bobruisk and Mogilev. Jewish leaders were eager to see local children also benefit from this program.

The Jewish community of Brest - a member of the Association of Jewish Communities of Belarus, which is affiliated with the Federation of Jewish Communities of the CIS - is not new to helping children. It continues to carry out the 'Mazel Tov' program, which provides material assistance to assist large and otherwise needy Jewish families.
