AGAIN JEWISH sounded SPEECH ...
The village Gvardiyskoe Khmelnitsky region was once a typical Jewish town. One hundred years ago in Fel'shtyn (since then it was called) lived three and a half thousand people, of which nearly two thousand were Jews. They worked there a Jewish village council, Jewish schools and synagogues. but in 1919 , the Jewish pogrom in the town, that killed 600 human, and then the Holocaust. Closed Jewish schools and synagogues. Jews began to leave the hectic place.
In the shtetl Jews greeted the old days all wrong, like we used to. Meeting Outdoor, They talked: nate you happiness. In Gvardiyskom not a single Jew, no one to greet Ukrainians and Poles flowery Hebrew expression "Nate you happiness". But the interest of the villagers to the culture of their old neighbors is not exhausted. Rector of the Roman Catholic parish of. Peter Hluvka, who did a lot of research about the pogrom in Fel'shtyn, and the director of the local gymnasium Yuri Fedorov (together they spend a great job of preserving the historical heritage of the village) They asked us to hold a Jewish concert, and we are pleased to respond to this proposal.
This concert has become a kind of history lesson – history of his native town, only without the assessment and with a wonderful mood. Like a hundred years ago, in the village sounded Jewish question. With the difference, not on the streets or in the synagogues, and songs, which were performed in Yiddish and Hebrew.
The audience got to us very grateful. She cordially, storm of applause greeted our artists: artistic director of Khmelnitsky Charitable Foundation "Hesed Besht" Anatoly Music, Volunteer Fund Kiru Nanba, teacher of Khmelnytsky Humanities and Pedagogic Academy Alexey Radetzky and folk amateur group from among the students of the same Academy. It lasted a half hour concert, but the audience is not tired and reluctantly parted. For us this is the best compliment.
