Limmud FSU Australia


Reaching out to the young Russian-Jewish population across this vast country, Limmud FSU Australia delivered its first conference held March 6-9, 2015 with a big success, as well as a second one at September 2016 (Sydney).  The newest outpost of Jewish learning for young people with Russian backgrounds, these young Russian-Jewish Aussies are seeking knowledge and experiences based on Jewish values, traditions, and identity.


A local Limmud FSU Australia Organizing Committee, chaired by  leaders of Russian community and young adults from leadership programs run by the ZFA and JAFI, made a great effort to reach the Limmud standarts and succeeded.  Initial outreach to Russian-speaking young people focused on Sydney and Melbourne, communities with the large Jewish populations. The Committee worked together with Tania Shvartsman, project manager, who helped them in the development of meaningful Jewish learning and leadership development programming.
