The contribution of the Jews in the Bulgarian culture and art transformed itself from a completely unknown subject to a close and loved topic, especially for the students from all corners of our country who participated in the third edition of the National Literary Students Competition, organized by the Center for Jewish-Bulgarian cooperation “Aleph”. The topic that provoked the students was “Art is a scene that blurs all differences – the contribution of the Bulgarian Jews in the culture of our country.” On April 12, 2016 in the former Burgas Synagogue, now the Art Gallery “Petko Zadgorski” the winners were awarded. First prize went to Detelina Staneva from School of Arts “Panayot Pipkov” – Pleven. The award was given by Itzhak Finzi.
