Strong FSU expertise, with the ability to asses, motivate and excite North American Russian speaking Jews.
A pluralistic and humanistic educational perspective of strengthening the Jewish identity through Israel, arts and culture in the framework of experience-centered and interactive educational environment
A wide “pool” of Russian- speaking educators for youth/adult education and for cultural connection
The main idea is to explore the basics of Jewish identity and tradition in non-invasive, non-religious way using:
Arts and culture - literature, music and arts have a special place in ability to convey a personal message to Russian speaking Jew. Popular cultural platforms, used in FSU, can be transformed and re-filled with contemporary Jewish/Israeli content.
Israel engagement as an entrance point and attraction/outreach
Working with local grass root organizations – many unaffiliated young adults form groups with a strong social common denominator, that seek a connection to quality Jewish/Israeli content and a organized social gathering.
Israeli shaliach/madrih as an intercultural bridge – Israeli informal educator with FSU Expertise, understanding the Russian Jewish mentality along American reality
