Jerusalem, May 8, 2015
Over 20 saplings of orange trees, peach trees and olive trees have been planted at the Russian representation in Magdala (Israel) within the framework of the “Parade of Victory on the Holy Land” international festival. The organizer of the action is the Moscow-based “Krugozor” Charitable Foundation for Support and Realization of Socially-Significant Programs.
Head of the Russian Ecclesiastic Mission in Jerusalem Igumen Theophan (Lukyanov) took part in the action.
The “Parade of Victory on the Holy Land” international festival dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the Russia’s Victory in the Great Patriotic War (World War II) is held already for the second time.
22 schoolchildren came to Israel from Moscow and Nizhny Novgorod. These are the “Parade of Victory” festival (which was held in Moscow) nominees—the “Kalinka” folk dance company as well as singers and readers.
Performers aged 11-16 willingly took part in the action and created the memorial garden in Magdala assisted by staff members of the Russian Ecclesiastic Mission in Jerusalem.
During their journey in the Holy Land the young artists from Russia will give concerts in Bethlehem and Tel Aviv.
