For the first time since the end of World War II, members of the Jewish Community in Zemun gathered in their Synagogue to celebrate the most joyous Jewish holiday of Purim.
The "host" of the celebrations was the restaurant "Sač", tenants of the Synagogue. The building was returned to their former owners, the Jewish community of Zemun last year so they´ll have to move in the two years period. Inspite of that their staff was more than helpfull in order to make us feel good. Their orchestra who played Hava Nagila made particularly important contribution to that.

Chag sameach!

The Jewish New Year of trees and fruits was celebrated in our community, beginning with traditional servings of southern fruits.
With Nikola Salaćanin´s music performance we enjoyed having fun and warm atmosphere of this windy and icy night.
Unfortunately, this year the president of our community was not with us to tell us more about this Jewish holiday due to his visit of a family on the summer hemisphere of the globe. He was successfully replaced by the community secretary Ria who provided catering in the holiday spirit: five kinds of very tasty salads and sweets.
