Many of our compatriots, who fought at the fronts during the Second World War, live in Israel. Those who live in Eilat, unites the Veterans’ Club, which is under the trusteeship of the Municipal Absorption Department of the city.

A magnificent celebration of the 65th anniversary of Victory Day was organized on the initiative of Oleg Chernovets and Oleg Mindel, the deputies of the City Council.

The celebration was held on the 9th of May in the “Club-Hotel” hall, one of the best halls in the city. All the veterans were presented with commemorative medals, received beforehand in Moscow, and then was a great concert. Performances of the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the heroes won a great sympathy of veterans. The celebration was traditionally ended with a festive dinner.

The Jewish National Fund of Russia has given a special grant to veterans for a decent celebration of the 65th anniversary of the Victory Day, and among the kind words spoken on the holiday, were words of gratitude to Vladimir Shternfeld, the Fund Board Chairman.
