Anna grew up in a secular Jewish family, knowing little about what it means to be Jewish. Joining the JDC staff in Kiev eight years ago opened up a whole new Jewish world for her. After working as JDC's PR and Missions manager, Anna was promoted to the position of Jewish Renewal coordinator. Today, as director of the new JCC that opened its doors only three years ago, Anna focuses her energies on developing innovative programs and content for ever-expanding audiences. Her mission: to ensure a vibrant Jewish future in the city she loves.
