The MILI Program: Midreshet Yerushalayim

The MILI Program: Midreshet Yerushalayim

MILI is an educational program that incorporates intellectual memory and skill games, and is modeled on the famous Russian TV game show "What? Where? When?" The goal of these clubs is to engage young adults in the discussion of Jewish values.

With the support of Genesis Philanthropy Group, three new MILI clubs opened in 2011. The clubs offered classes on Jewish Studies and several Beit Midrashes on sites of interest in Jerusalem, the history of Jerusalem and the Jewish people, and Israeli literature and culture. A number of classes were also dedicated to the study of Torah commentaries.

The classes were attended by 840 young adults who later participated in intellectual games to test and showcase their knowledge of the course content.

Goals and Objectives

  • Facilitate the restoration of traditional Jewish learning.
  • Strengthen Jewish identity and popularize Jewish cultural values among young Russian-speaking Israelis.
  • Develop an interest in Jewish traditions.
