Darina Makhlina
Darina joined JDC-Urals/Volga in 2014 as the Jewish Renewal and volunteer coordinator. Inspired by her grandfather, who was a leader in the Yekaterinburg Jewish community, Darina aims to create and develop Jewish connections not only in her hometown but in the entire region. Working with JDC on behalf of the Jewish people energizes her, fosters her own personal growth, and constantly has a tremendous impact on the other areas of her life, including improvisation and athletics.
