Maintaining Jewish Identity is becoming more difficult
Intermarriage rates have skyrocketed, and assimilation and the decline of our culture, observance, and education puts the entire Jewish population at great risk. Our youth are particularly vulnerable and their Jewish connection is slowly dwindling. The threat of losing Jewish identity is real. Through engaging our youth with meaningful Jewish experiences, Yahad keeps their connection strong.
Help us preserve and inspire life-long vibrant Jewish life, learning, leadership & community for our youth–OUR FUTURE.
YAHAD is on a mission to inspire, preserve, and enrich Jewish life amongst FSU’s University students and young professionals. By providing educational, social, and spiritual programs and events, YAHAD cultivates a warm and comfortable space for young Jews to grow, connect to their heritage, and carry on the traditions from generations past.
YAHAD currently operates in Azerbaijan, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kirgizstan, Latvia, Uzbekistan, Russia, and Ukraine with over 80+ branches across the FSU, and is under the umbrella organization of the Federation of Jewish Communities of the CIS.
