Executive Director of Limmud FSU, Roman Kogan stated, "We are very proud of this joint project and for the partnership with the MFJC. Although the mandates of our organizations are different, there is much that we share regarding ideology, philosophy and attitude towards Jewish communal and educational life, including pluralism, the value of learning, respect for different views, and we are happy to help facilitate this educational platform for the participants and volunteers".
"The Regional Nahum Goldmann Fellowships create an opportunity for participants to reflect on their contemporary reality and experience in Jewish communal life, and discuss with their peers issues of Jewish identity," said Executive Vice-President of the MFJC, Rabbi Jeni Friedman. "Each program is an immersive experience offering deep learning opportunities and creating meaningful connections crossing geographical, ideological and denominational divides. We are grateful for our partnership with Limmud FSU, which is bringing back to the region a new generation of Jewish professional and communal lay leaders."
