Additionally, every year a part of Magen group is attending the Jewrovision organized by Bnei Akiva.
Jewrovision song contest is held annually with the aim of connecting young people throughout Europe over 14 years old, to Judaism in an experimental way using music and Eurovision. The event is sponsored by World Bnei Akiva (WBA) and by the KKL-JNF (Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael – Jewish National Fund) Education Department.
This year Jewrovision’s theme was "Freedom" and it was held in Antwerp, Belgium. Representing Turkey this year, 13 young people from TT Magen group attended the competition, together with two instructors from Talmud Torah Caddebostan. This event which brings hundreds of young people together from European countries every year, both takes our young people into a big network and makes them understand clearly how important being Jewish, Jewish traditions and Shabbat are all over the world.
The young people who went to Antwerp, sincerely express with pride, how much Talmud Torah programs had changed their lives and personalities in a positive way.
