“Russian-speaking Jewry” (RSJ) is an acronym iterated from my mouth more often than any modern-day colloquial abbreviations. Russian born; Brooklyn raised; Boston educated. RSJ has developed from my childhood of English at school, Russian at home, Hanukkah menorahs and New Year’s trees, trips to Israel and churches into a career of JCCs, the JCRC and now my current role at Moishe House as director of RSJ programming. Today I oversee a growing network of 16 RSJ Moishe Houses, a leading platform for engagement of RSJ young adults worldwide in creating meaningful Jewish experiences and developing vibrant communities.
