The ambassadors of Israel, Turkey, the U.S., and other official guests in attendance added to the pride this event held for the Bulgarian Jewish community. In a country beset by ongoing economic difficulties and social tensions, the head of state’s role conveyed to the public that the Jewish community is a respected and integral part of Bulgarian society.
The candlelighting was complemented by a joyful performance of holiday songs by the youth choir, and a festive party that followed at one of the two Jewish Community Centers in Sofia that JDC helps to support.

Instead of trying to remember a bunch of special username/password combinations to log in to different web sites that you visit, you can now link your account on this web site to your account on one (or more) of the social media web sites shown and log in with the same username/password combination that you use on that social web site to log in to our site.
To provide this connection in a secure manner, we use Gigya, a social network connection provider that works behind the scenes to make safe, secure connections between user accounts on different systems, such as popular social media web sites like Facebook and web sites like ours where you are actively involved in social issues and causes.
Each time you log in, Gigya uses special application programming interfaces (APIs) to establish the connection between the sites and validate your username and password. Neither our web site or Gigya receive or store your social network passwords.
In addition to reducing the number of logins you have to remember, connecting your accounts can make it quicker and easier to share an activity or cause you feel passionately about from our web site with your friends on your social web sites.
