In ordinary life, I am an actress of the Tashkent Operetta Theater. However, when I work in the projects of the “Jewish Revival”, I feel like a magician, a creator. I take part in the project “Birthday Party” for two years already, where I sing for old birthday men and women. I am indescribably pleased when charming smiles appear on their faces! In the summer of 2017, I began to stage a play based on the story of I. Bashevis-Singer “Three Wishes” with children and teenagers. Then I was able to show all my creative abilities again. In my opinion, we did our best! You can visit the premiere of the play on September 24, 2017. This kind of volunteer work gives me real pleasure, because I can do what I like; give good spontaneously and with all my heart!

I came to the project “Jewish Revival” in early 2016. I try to participate actively in all project activities. In the summer of 2017, within the framework of a stationary summer camp, I was leading the project “Photostudio”, which enjoyed special success among children. Besides volunteering, I like drawing, burning wood, baking delicious pies that everyone loves at the volunteer center, sewing clothes for my family and myself. In addition, I take photographs of all the events taking place in the community, and I help with the equipment.

In the autumn of 2016, I was a volunteer madrih on the Shabbaton, dedicated to the autumn holidays. This was my second experience as a madrich. The first time I tried myself in this matter in March 2016 at a family seminar dedicated to Purim.

My name is Svetlana and I am a housewife. My daughter Maria had been a client of the project “Children’s initiative”, but in 2013 she was removed from service list in connection with the change in criteria of helping children. In spite of this, I continue to be actively involved in the Jewish community life, because I am thankful to Joint for the attention and warmth, which my family had received.

My name is Antonina and I am 45 years old. I started to attend the program “Jewish revival” with my daughter and son. When we got into a difficult situation, I looked for help in the project “Children’s Initiative” and learned that the program “Bank of things” need volunteers. I have been volunteering for many years, and I think that people should be able to share their attention and time with others.

My name is Agnes and I am a student. Together with my grandmother we take part in community life, and recently I have passed the School for young leaders. I started volunteering just for the company, because a large number of my friends from the Jewish center were engaged in volunteering. Currently I am an employee of the project “Youth Club” at the Joint branch in Uzbekistan, but also I don’t leave volunteering in the project “Children’s initiative” because it is already in my blood.

I have worked as a choreographer for many years, and now I am supervising «Le hava» dance studio. Three years ago I brought my grandson to the program “Logic” of the project “Children’s Initiative”, where I got known with activities of the organization, and saw with what enthusiasm do wards practice folk and ballroom dancing. That is the way I began to help them in this field. During these three years the studio «Le hava» has become a real hallmark of Hesed! In my working life, I have released a lot of students, but few of them are engaged in folk dances with such passion. That is what motivates me to continue volunteering.
