USA Celebration at the KJJC

“Thank you so much for inviting me tonight to the KEDEM Jacobs Jewish Center. It is wonderful to be here to celebrate the birthday of the United States. I hope the spirit of tonight will last for years in this community and in Moldova”, wrote Mr. William Moser, Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of the USA in the Republic of Moldova in the KJJC Guest Book.

Besides His Excellency Ambassador, Jeffrey Goveya, Regional Director of Peace Corps in Moldova, Matthew Easter, the second Secretary of the US Embassy in Moldova, about 200 people came to celebrate the Independence Day of one of the leading countries in the world in economy, science, democracy, and technologies development, country that became home for about 6 million Jews.

 

And KJJC can share this celebration because the charitable, cultural and educational activities of the center were made possible thanks to the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee and a businessman and philanthropist from San Diego, Irwin Jacobs has become the main sponsor of its construction.

Songs of Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston, Franc Sinatra and Gloria Gaynor performed by the JCC KEDEM art-groups stars, quiz about history and symbols of the USA and famous Americans, parodies and dances, pop-corn an chips with Cola and Sprite, touching farewell with Ohad Sternberg, Peace Corps Volunteer who spent two years at the KJJC, speech in Russian by the Ambassador of the USA in Moldova – all this made event cozy, heartily warm and American-styled.
