September,23 Mogilev holds the day devoted to Tel Aviv. It will celebrate a hundred-year anniversary of Tel Aviv, the city of a dream. The information is provided by Irina Zhabbarova, the deputy head of the Culture Department of Mogilev City administration.
Israel Embassy Culture and Information Centre in Belarus, Mogilev Regional Executive Committee, and the Jewish Community are the organizers of the event. "There are definite reasons to celebrate Tel Aviv's anniversary in Mogilev. Last century a lot of Mogilev citizens left for Israel. At the beginning of the XX century the Jews made about 50% of Mogilev population. And our fellow countryman Markus Gakogen is one of the founders of the city. He was among those who took part in Tel Aviv's foundation in 1909", - Irina Zhabbarova noted.
The Square of Stars will hold the opening ceremony. There will be a photo-stand with Tel Aviv sights; anyone can be pictured on the coast of Israel with a "presence effect". Trolleybus 2 will be decorated with Tel Aviv sights. All day long it will play Israel music. And during a short excursion the representatives of the embassy of Israel will give souvenirs to the citizens.
