“Don’t just stand around…take Action!”

Here’s what makes the Action program unique:

Relevant: Action will be more than reviewing  Hebrew texts. Thousands of years of Jewish wisdom will be focused through the lens of your life. Plus, you’ll get the opportunity to take the philosophy you learn and put it into action (pun intended)

In-depth: If you want to do more than scratch the surface of Jewish learning, Action is designed so you’ll walk away each night as an expert in that day’s topic- more education than the majority of Jews will get in their life

Personal: We’re keeping the class sizes small so we can make sure the experience is catered to you. Our shabbatons will be rocking because you won’t just be in a group of 100 strangers- you’ll be with all your friends. We will have two tracks of learning so whether you want a more intense experience or one that’s more laid back, Action is right for you.

Superior: Want to learn about Israel? We have professional advocacy specialist. Want to learn about Jewish philosophy? We have some of the most refined minds in Jewish education. YourIsrael trip will be lead by the most experienced guys on staff at RAJE and we guarantee it will be the most incredible trip in the holy land.

Awesome: Action is the official learning program of RAJEon, the premier Russian-American YJP network. You’ll have front-line access to RAJEon events, occasions, clubs, classes, and dating services. Check it out at

When you’re ready, the application is waiting for you. So click here to register.

Essay Questions:

1. What Is ”Jewish?” Is Judaism a race, a religion or a nationality?

2. Why have Russian American Jews shied away from synagogue and Jewish Public Life? What can we do to bridge the gap?
3. What is RAJE’s Mission? Is it working? Does it have a future? What can they do to improve?
