BGI/Hornstein Program FSU Seminar

Each year, students in the Hornstein Program for Jewish Professional Leadership embark on a week-long journey to one of the Jewish communities in the former Soviet Union. This project helps emerging Jewish communal professionals from around the world:

  • Achieve a better understanding of the contemporary Jewish communities in the former Soviet Union, their current status, achievements and challenges.
  • Deepen understanding of Russian Jewish history, including in the contexts of the region's general history and global Jewish history.
  • Acquire networks, insights, and examples of practice that can inform and impact students' future professional careers.
