The Klein JCC in the Northeast section of the city is partnering with the American Jewish Committee (AJC) in the development of a unique new leadership program earmarked for young Russian professional Jewish families.
More after the jump.
Once enrolled, the young professionals will participate in a special series of lectures and seminars embracing Israeli history, culture and politics, as well as local philanthropy. The leadership development program will culminate with a subsidized week-long trip to Israel to experience first hand the history, culture and people of the Jewish state.
In making the announcement, Andre Krug, president & CEO of the Klein JCC, states:
We are seeking 10 young Russian professional Jewish families between the ages of 30 and 45 years with young children to take part in this special new leadership program. This program will provide is a very rare and stimulating opportunity for all of its participants to gain a deeper and more meaningful understanding of Israel and its people.
The mission of the American Jewish Committee is to enhance the well being of Israel and the Jewish people worldwide, and to advance human rights and democratic values in the United States and around the world.
Now celebrating its 37th anniversary year, the non-profit Klein JCC provides social, educational and cultural programs, as well as vital social services for people living in Northeast Philadelphia and its surrounding communities.
Any young Russian professional Jewish families in the area who are interested in participating should contact Krug at the Klein JCC: 215-698-7300.
