Grants in the Former Soviet Union



Initiated by the Bryansk Hesed Tikva JCC with the support of Genesis Philanthropy Group,

Ikhud is a project aimed at engaging young Jewish activists, teaching them leadership skills, and educating them about Jewish culture and traditions. Although Jewish youth clubs have actively operated in Bryansk for years, small Jewish communities outside the city have had a low level of activity due to a lack of knowledge and resources. This project will develop local leaders capable of reviving and developing these smaller Jewish communities.

Goals and Objectives

  • Identify potential Ikhud participants in the Bryansk Region cities of Novozybkov, Klintsy, Surazh, and Inecha
  • Develop Jewish youth clubs in the Bryansk Region
  • Educate Jewish youth and provide them with an opportunity to volunteer and develop leadership skills
  • Encourage joint activities between local clubs and Hesed Tikva Youth Club
