More than 800 Russian-speaking Taglit-Birthright Israel participants celebrated at a festive mega-event on Tuesday night.

The event was created through the collaboration of Taglit-Birthright Israel and the Genesis Philanthropy Group.

Donors and friends from worldwide Jewish communities joined the hundreds of Russian-speaking Taglit-Birthright Israel participants, who represented 15 countries from the former Soviet Union.

Held at Hangar 11 in Tel Aviv, the event was hosted by Israeli actress and dancer Anna Aronov, and the “Hatikvah 6” band.
