Last Sunday, EnerJew Moscow participated in the national “Good Deeds Day” initiated by International and local Jewish organizations. The entire EnerJew Moscow team arrived at the Russian Clinical Children’s Hospital to stage a theater performance, which brought the little patients some extra smiles and positive emotions.
“We were really happy to take part in such a large volunteering project and we’ll try to include more good deeds into our club’s activity in the future,” said Dan Schneider, EnerJew Moscow coordinator.
The event came as part of EnerJew Jewish youth movement’s strategy to include more volunteering and ‘giving back’ activities into this year’s movement scope. “We are moving away from pure consumption, focusing more on action, on doing, on volunteering. This is the year we start giving back,” said Konstantin Shulman, EnerJew director at the movement’s coordinators seminar back in December.
Called “Be the Change,” EnerJew’s volunteering projects are taking place throughout the entire FSU region in 40 cities, helping local Jewish communities with event organization, visiting and caring for the elderly, creating children’s events and more.
