About RJD


Who We Are

JUF Russian Jewish Division (RJD) is a community of young professionals and young families of the Former Soviet Union background. RJD provides a welcoming space to navigate the Jewish community, build friendships and develop leadership skills. 

United by our shared stories, we celebrate our heritage and grow leaders.

Our Mission

The Russian Jewish Division believes in the integration of Russian-speaking Jewish young adults into the greater Jewish community. Our mission is to engage our community in the pluralistic aspects of Jewish life from across the spectrum of observance. While continuing to tailor to the specific needs of our young adult community, RJD serves as a resource and 'connection' to JUF and the Jewish community at large.
