honor of 50 years of the leadership of the Rebbe and 10 years of
permanent shlichus in Kharkov, Ukraine (and in the CIS in
general), a Jewish songbook in Russian has been published
especially for Jewish kindergarten children.
Greeting Moshiach with Song, the
songbook consists of over 100 easy-to-sing songs mainly in
Russian. The songs are divided into seven categories and come with
translations and explanations. Many songs also include wonderful
ideas such as hand motions, dances, and games.
began as a small collection of songs for the Chabad kindergarten
in Kharkov rapidly grew into a project for the whole CIS. “Any
music teacher, no matter what his/her Jewish background, will be
able to pick up this book and understand all kinds of Jewish
concepts. Then s/he will be able to teach them to the children
through song,” says Esther D. Raices, principal of the Chabad
kindergarten in Kharkov.

Assistance and Relief Network, will be distributed, G-d willing,
not only in big cities, but also in remote villages with no more

singing Jewish songs in Russian, the whole family will learn about
the importance and beauty of their heritage.

Jews, especially the children, are very dear to the Rebbe; we have
no doubt that this book will give him nachas. And we hope
and pray that together with all our brothers and sisters in the
CIS, we will greet Moshiach with song and happiness in the third Beis
Hamikdosh in Yerushalayim!
