The idea of the Festival is to tell about the peculiarities and interrelationships of the Belarusian and Jewish culture, to show how it influenced the national and world cultural heritage; to acquaint participants with traditions, forgotten or unknown to most events and names, without supporting false templates and clichés; to reveal the connection between generations, to open the way to the search for roots and national identity, values that are called upon to find continuation in modern Belarusians.
The festival is a fresh look at the history of our roots, a step towards a deeper understanding of our national identity and history.
This year the festival will take place on the days of Hanukkah - a holiday of wonder and light.
8 days - 8 amazing projects that will open new facets of the unique Belarusian-Jewish culture through theater, cuisine, music, dance, literature, walks and conversations with the best experts. The online format will allow everyone to participate.
