RAJMN is the only Jewish-Russian program for young families in Minnesota, working to connect them to the larger Jewish community and provide a deeper understanding of Judaism and Russian-Jewish roots and culture.
We are a volunteer-led initiative, and our programs and events, held throughout the year, celebrate Jewish and Russian culture and serve as learning opportunities. We also serve as a bridge to other Jewish organizations, connecting Russian-American Jews to synagogues, Jewish schools, programs in Israel, Jewish summer camps and other programs as needed.
We celebrate together and honor our shared history and culture! Since its start, RAJMN has hosted over 300 programs, including annual Hanukah, Purim, Rosh Hashanah, Passover and Yom Ha’atzmaut celebrations, Jewish education and cultural arts programs.
RAJMN Teen Fellowship: This school-year-long program starts in September and runs for 10 months. The video covers the activities of the year 2018.
Participants explore and expand their understanding of who they are, who they want to be, and how they want to make a mark on the world. Monthly guest speakers cover various Jewish topics (Israel, Holocaust, Jewish History, art, music, etc.).
Participants are challenged to define their strengths and personal leadership goals. RAJMN provides the tools, feedback, and mentoring they need to experiment, collaborate and learn from their experiences. Teens have leadership opportunities in fundraising, events planing, marketing, recruitment and volunteering in the RSJ community. Fellowship participants also have the option of attending Jewish conferences in US and world wide.
