This Pesach (Passover), Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR), in partnership with the World Union for Progressive Judaism (WUPJ), will be sending 16 students to facilitate educational programming and prayer experiences in progressive communities in the Former Soviet Union (FSU). The FSU Pesach Project is made possible by the financial support of family, friends and the greater progressive Jewish community around the world. This tremendous opportunity strengthens the connections between HUC-JIR and Worldwide Progressive Judaism, enriches progressive communities in the FSU, and provides participants with the once-in-a-lifetime experience of sharing Pesach with the unique Jewish communities in the FSU.
In order for us 16 students to be able to participate in this amazing opportunity, we need your help!!!! Please donate money to our team or to a specific participant check out our Donate Now! page which gives you all the instructions on how to do so.
