Limmud FSU Invites Peres To Visit His Belarus Hometown This Fall



Israeli President Shimon Peres met with the leadership of Limmud FSU on June 16 in his presidential residence in Jerusalem. Meeting participants included Matthew Bronfman, chairman of the organization; Aaron Frenkel, president; Chaim Chesler and Sandra Cahn, founders; and Roman Kogan, CEO. Members of Limmud FSU detailed the organization’s activities worldwide, and invited President Peres to be a special guest in the upcoming Limmud FSU conference in Belarus, this September, and to visit his hometown of Vishnyeva. Peres thanked the leadership for the invitation and complimented Limmud FSU for its unparalleled impact within Russian-speaking Jewish communities around the world.

About Limmud FSU:

Limmud FSU is a nonprofit founded eight years ago by Chaim Chesler, former treasurer of the Jewish Agency; Sandra Cahn, philanthropist from New York; and Professor Michael Chlenov of Moscow, to engage young Russian-Jewish adults and empowers them  to take ownership of their identity and connect with their communities through pluralistic, egalitarian volunteer-driven conferences of Jewish learning and culture. By bringing together and empowering these young Jewish adults, Limmud FSU strives to revitalize Jewish communities in the countries of the former Soviet Union, and in countries with Russian-Jewish communities, wherever they may be.

 

The organization operates in seven countries, including Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, USA, Canada and Israel. Some 25,000 participants have taken part in its conferences, projects and festivals. Key partners include the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews headed by Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, the Claims Conference, JDC, philanthropists Matthew Bronfman, Aaron Frenkel and Diane Wohl, Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Jerusalem and Diaspora Affairs, Ministry of Education, Jewish National Fund (KKL), Dr. Nona International, Nativ, the Jewish Agency and others.
