For our bay neighbors who can count themselves as both Russian and Jewish, Sheepshead Bites would like to introduce you to the Russian American Jewish Experience (RAJE) organization. As an organization focused on working with Russian New Yorkers, this division of Gateways, its mother agency, is committed to bringing Russian life together with Judaic life. One of its many ways of doing this is by organizing specialized birthright trips to Israel for anyone of Jewish descent. You can check their well-designed website for more information.
From RAJE’s website:
“We are passionate about building a community that embraces Russian speaking Jews from all walks of life. The core of RAJE is our Fellowship Programming. Our center is continuously buzzing with the energy of new students, inspired learners and lifetime academics. Behind our doors is a staff dedicated to providing excellence in Jewish education and learning. We believe in creating an open environment that encourages people at all levels to explore their Jewish identity.”
