St. Petersburg hosted Israel Day on May 17
05.19.2003 15:07

Zubin Meta, conductor of the Israeli State Philharmonic Orchestra An Israel Day was held in St.Petersburg on May 17. The event began at 14.00 in the Great Choral Synagogue. Israeli Minister for Jerusalem Nathan Sharansky was the head of the delegation coming to St. Petersburg to mark the event.

Jerusalem City Council and the Jerusalem Foundation presented St. Petersburg with a sculpture called 'Lion' - the symbol of Jerusalem - as a 300th anniversary gift. The piece has been made by Ruslan Sergeev, a sculptor and designer who moved from Minsk to Israel in 1992 and who is now one of the country's leading sculptors. 'Lion' is a mosaic created from materials including stained glass, mirrored glass and stainless steel. Israel also gave St. Petersburg a series of five paintings by well-known Israeli artist Mikhail Khazin.

The ceremonial presentation of the gifts took place tomorrow in the Russian Ethnographic Museum, where they will also be held in the future. The event's closing ceremony took place at the Mariinsky Theatre, where the Israeli State Philharmonic Orchestra gave a concert conducted by Zubin Meta.
