NEWS - Lodges and B'nai B'rith updates

Report from Veronika Klimova
The Jewish kindergarten "Aleph Bet Gimel" has been active in Lviv, in Ukraine, since 2001. It is financially and spiritually supported by B'nai B'rith "Leopolis" carried the name of Dr. Emil Domberger and personally by Joseph Domberger. Thanks to this care the kindergarten has been able to survive in the Ukrainian economic chaos. Now it's called - "B'nai B'rith Kindergarten". Here little Jews have been attached to the religion and traditions of their ancestors. And even after leaving it and going to school they do not lose any connection with "Aleph Bet Gimel," nor with B'nai B'rith.


A fortunate coincidence made from "The Spring of B'nai B'rith Romania (BBR) - a trip outdoor, that has become a tradition, a way of socializing for the BBR's members, part of the initiated programme since the election of eng. Jose Iacobescu as President of the Forum - a good occasion to celebrate The Jerusalem Day in a different way from the classic formula.
