Our Funders

GPGThe Brandeis-Genesis Institute for Russian Jewry was launched in 2009 with generous funding from the Genesis Philanthropy Group.

The Genesis Philanthropy Group was established in 2007 with the mission to develop and enhance a sense of Jewish identity among Russian-speaking Jews worldwide, with particular emphasis on the former Soviet Union, North America and Israel, where up to three million Russian-speaking Jews reside.

Since its inception, the foundation has made more than 100 grants to organizations such as Brandeis University, Taglit-Birthright Israel, Moishe House, Hillel Russia, Yad Vashem, the Council of Jewish Emigre Community Organizations, Moscow State University, the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto, St. Petersburg State University and others.
