The latest from our Short Term Service Programs in the Former Soviet Union

JDC Short-Term Service Programs are connecting North American young adults to the global Jewish community through 10-day volunteer programs in a Jewish community
overseas. Participants gain a firsthand understanding of the challenges facing a Jewish community overseas and how JDC is addressing community needs.

They have the opportunity to engage in a meaningful service project, connect and build friendships with local Jewish peers , explore what Jewish tradition has to say about service and responsibility to the Jewish people and the world and act as ambassadors for Jewish needs overseas, ready to mobilize friends, family and communities to help.

The most recent trips are in the Former Soviet Union, Dnepropetrovsk and Kharkov, Ukraine and Kazakhstan. You can check out what they have been up to by visiting their blogs.
