Tanya Zaytseva

N.A. RSJ Community Manager

Portland, Oregon

Tanya is the North American RSJ Community Manager, who originally started on our team in the Former Soviet Union.  Why did she return? Tanya feels that Moishe House is a unique place that allows employees and residents to collaborate, work and grow together to create a future for the Jewish community. In her new role as a community manager and educator, she is able to have deeper relationships with her residents, learn about their needs, and help them turn their struggles into success.

Tanya holds a dual degree in Jewish Studies and Pedagogy from Moscow State University. She is also an alumna of Paideia, the Institute of Jewish Studies in Sweden. Her previous work experience include working for Hillel Russia, The Global Day of Jewish Learning, and being a co-founder of the Jewish educational project JewF.I.S.H.
