Belarus is celebrating the “Days of Israel” in honor of the Jewish state’s 60th anniversary.

The three-day celebration, sponsored by the cultural center of the Israeli Embassy, started Monday in the city of Brest. It includes concerts, screenings of award-winning Israeli films, an exhibit of Israeli artists’ paintings and a book exhibit.

Brest officials and foreign diplomats attended the opening events.

The same event will be held later this month in the Belarusian city of Bobruisk.
