Seminar for Jewish Students in Berlin

Seminar for Jewish Students in Berlin

In 2009, the European Center for Jewish Students developed the Just One Shabbat program.
Just One Shabbat is an international program that gives Jewish students and young professionals from different countries an opportunity to hold a New Year's celebration together in an informal and peaceful atmosphere.

A joint trip during the New Year vacation period was organized for Jewish students from Europe. Participants discovered new elements of Jewish culture and philosophy, learned about Jewish cuisine, and discussed contemporary social and ethnic problems of interest to them.

A grant from Genesis Philanthropy Group provided a partial subsidy for 21 Russian-speaking participants from Israel and the FSU.
