Israel celebrates Pesach and Nowruz
Two days before the Jewish holiday of Pesach, the festival of Nowruz was celebrated in Israel. Nowruz is not associated with religion in the country and is marked by immigrants from post-Soviet countries such as Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan as a spring day.
The Israel-Azerbaijan Association has organized a special event for Nowruz. The head of the Azerbaijani Cultural Centre, Yegyana Salman, opened the event and told the attendees about the history of Nowruz.
All the guests enjoyed the special Baku-style atmosphere of the event.
