A new initiative of the RJD: This is an ongoing event that helps connect and engage Russian-Jewish young professionals. People are welcome to come on their lunch breaks and have an open discussion on various topics in our community, exciting upcoming events and anything relevant in the RSJ world. We hope through doing this we can inspire our community to bond together and meet new friends & colleagues. We encourage you to bring new members to the table! Please follow the RJD FB page for dates & time.
In the spirit of High Holidays, on Sunday September 13th, kids ages 1-4 and parents gathered for Russian Book Buddies in celebration of Rosh Hashana. The kids enjoyed an hour of arts and crafts themed around the Jewish holiday and later enjoyed story time and a fun history lesson.
