The Men of Reform Judaism 2 Grant Reports
2013-2014 Academic year
Russian Jewish Division, JUF Chicago, IL
Prepared by Ramona Luka
With the support from the Men of Reform Judaism, Russian Jewish Division was able to organize great programs and celebrations for Russian-speaking Jewish students. The events and programs were organized in partnership with the Hillels of Illinois. The grants gave us the opportunity to offer uniquely tailored Reform style Shabbat experience at the University of Illinois and 4 ‘Lunch and Learn’ sessions for the students on 4 different campuses.
We had to adjust a few dates from the original approved proposal, due to academic calendar settings.
We have used the first grant of $400. to organize four Lunch and Learn session. (Grant received on 10/24/2013)
The second grantof $500 was used to organize one large cross-campus Shabbat. (Grant received on 01/24/2014)
We are tremendously thankful for the support from the MRJ and the ROC Grant Committees and the Men of Reform Judaism for helping to make these events happen. Please see the write up and photos as requested below and let us know if you have any questions.
