Of The Jewish Confederation Of Ukraine
In Brief ...
Ukraine is, undoubtedly, a European country, and Jews of Ukraine are, unquestionably, a European Jewry. It is a great pity not all Jews in Ukraine and even far from all Jews in Kiev know there is a day different from all others - European day of Jewish culture. In many countries this day is marked by concerts, exhibitions and other cultural events.
I'd like to introduce to you, dear readers, Sofia Raikhman - a photo-artist, member of the Union of photo-artists whose works are known in Simferopol and far beyond it. In March 2002 she was awarded a title of Merited worker of culture of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.
June 29-30 the VI All-Ukrainian festival of Jewish art "Shalom, Ukraine!" under the auspices of Ministry of Culture and Arts was held in Kiev backed by the Jewish fund of Ukraine, "Joint" and Center for support of national cultures.
