On 13/2/2023, Birzeit Social Development and Cultural Center (BSCC,) in cooperation and partnership with the municipality of Atara, organized a celebration on the occasion of Valentine’s Day at the BSCC for the elders from the towns of Birzeit and Atara, in honor of their giving and love for their children and grandchildren for what they gave them over the years. This event is to express their love for each other as especially and to revive feelings that may be immersed under everyone’s daily routine.
The celebration included some entertaining activities and games. Roses were presented to the elders those present, which added joy and happiness to them, in addition to providing an honorary meal and sweets for all as an expression of our love in appreciation of their giving.
Sir. Rateb Rabie, President/CEO HCEF, stated that this celebration and similar celebrations for the elders are in order to return the favor from those who loved us and raised us with love, and it is nothing but an honor and appreciation for the efforts made by the elders over the years in preserving Palestinian traditions, culture and history and teaching them to future generations and the continuity of our civilized Palestinian existence built on historical foundations, this is our goal in honoring and serving the forgotten elders in our Palestinian society.
We extend our sincere thanks to the members of the BSCC’s Advisory and Administrative Committees and the Community at large for their cooperation in the success of this celebration and all the celebrations that we carry out. We also extend our thanks and appreciation to the municipality of Atara for sponsoring this honorary meal for elders.
