A Moving Russian Experience

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), September 1996

The editor of this journal was invited to participate in three 1996 winter educational conferences held in Russia. During them he has realized that though Russian Jews are in a sincere search for Jewish identity after seventy years of communist oppression, they suffer from profound ignorance of Jewish culture. He concludes that they are in need of advice from outside non-threatening educational institutions in Israel and the Diaspora that can help guide them on their mission.
