EnerJew, FJC’s Jewish youth movement across the FSU, announces the opening of a new branch in the city of Ufa, Russia. The youth movement, now already active in over 25 cities in five different countries, Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, Georgia and Azerbaijan, is excited by the opportunity to expand its activity to one of the most prominent Jewish communities in the region.
The city’s youngsters, aged 13-17, have been invited to join ongoing meetings and special events, including the special local and international seminars, Shabbatonim, and counselor and coordinator training programs.
“For us this is a dream coming true,” says the city’s Rabbi Dan Krishevsk. “EnerJew has gained a reputation for its ability to motivate the community’s youngster to take an active part and attracts many teenagers who previously kept away and turn them into leaders and activists.”
