Children's Ethnic Club "Tolerance" Opening

An ethnic club for children called "Tolerance" was launched on March 25, 2006 at the Kishinev Jacobs Jewish Campus. The club was strarted with the support of Ukrainian Congress of National Minorities, Kishinev’s Jewish Commmunity, and the Bureau for Interethnic Relations of Moldova. The purpose of the club is to educate children representing various communities in the spirit of tolerance to each other and to acnowledge the traditions and cultures of different nations.

The opening festivity gathered under one roof representatives of such national minority groups as: Jewish, Bulgarian, Russian, Armenian, Roma and more. Each of them brought a piece of their culture through songs and dances in their native languages.
The director of the Ukrainian Congress of National Minorities and author of the project, Josef Zissels, commented on the development: "Education of tolerance among national minorities is the only possibility to prevent hatred and aggression towards each other in future. God made us so different... it was his wisdom because it would be boring to live in a uniform world. By promoting tolerance programs, we do not try to equal the differences between us, but we interest each other, learn to respect and love each other because of this difference".
