 Former Soviet Union

Rebuilding for a brighter future

For decades, the Jewish communities of the Former Soviet Union were repressed—but they never disappeared. Today, these Jewish communities are experiencing an astonishing revival, and the Kaplan Leadership Initiative fellows from the region are leading the charge.

Two cohorts of the Kaplan FSU fellows completed the program. Each fellow added value providing Jewish perspectives from the home community and became a member of large international network of Jewish professionals.  In between seminars, our FSU fellows took part in valuable coaching and professional guidance training, helping to bring the Initiative’s concepts into action in every represented community.
