Netser Olami

Netser Olami has been organizing summer youth camps in the Russian Federation for many years. In 2009, two summer camps were organized in Moscow and St. Petersburg for Jewish children between 11 and 17 years of age from various Russian cities. Camp alumni are now active members of Jewish youth clubs in their cities.

In August 2010, Genesis Philanthropy Group and the Jewish Agency for Israel provided additional funding to launch a third camp in the Moscow suburbs. Ninety Jewish children between 14 and 17 years of age attended. Students were introduced to questions concerning Jewish identity, life in the Diaspora and the organization and development of Jewish clubs and communities.
