Alla Magas
Alla studied in Moscow, but returned to her hometown of Polvata after graduating to cultivate her Jewish community from the ground up as the local leader of the Progressive Judaism Youth Movement. Participation in the Metsuda Young Leadership program cemented her passion and grew her skills. In 2014, Alla founded teh Active Jewish Teens project, uniting Jewish youths from across Russia—it’s grown to over 50 cities and over 3,000 teens in just four years. That’s community building at its finest!
