Workshops for Madrichim

Workshops for Madrichim

This series of workshops for madrichim (counselors) was a joint pilot project of Genesis Philanthropy Group and the UJA-Federation of New York.

The curriculum consisted of two week-long modules. Each module was attended by 50 young madrichim from 21 cities in Russia and Ukraine. Adain Lo, a Grassroots organization from St. Petersburg that aims to support and develop Jewish culture, administrated the project.

The curriculum was developed by educators from Melamedia, the Jewish Agency for Israel, the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia and the Institute for Informal Education, alongside a number of educators from Russian and Ukrainian Jewish organizations with extensive experience in summer retreats and camps.
