Our philanthropy is inspired by the Jewish values and traditions that have sustained the Jewish people and advanced human civilization for millennia. As we move further into the 21st century, we envision a pluralistic Jewish identity – a source of exciting possibilities for a diverse Jewry and for continuing the task of perfecting the world.
A fascinating epic, RUSSIAN JEWS follows their rich and complex history from 11th century through the collapse of the Soviet Union. Created and narrated by acclaimed journalist Leonid Parfenov, the trilogy highlights Jewish contributions to Russian and Soviet societies. The stories which Leonid Parfenov so masterfully depicts in the trilogy deserve a stage to be retold. Why was the phenomenon of Russian Jewry so significant for Soviet life, but, just as significant for the anti-Soviet movement? Why does it continue to impact the post-Soviet reality in the countries of the former Soviet Union as well as beyond their borders? These and other important questions emerge from the trilogy to help engage its audience in this ever-important intellectual discourse.
