Target demographics: 18 – 30 year old Russian American Jews

Geographic areas served: North America

Programs: RAJE developed a unique system of deep level engagement, known as the RAJE Fellowship program. The semester long program consists of ten, 4.5 hour sessions, 2 weekend retreats and a 14 day educational trip to Europe and Israel. Over the course of a single semester the students experience over 250 hours of highly impactful and transformative programming, a higher level of deep level engagement then any program of its type within the Jewish community.

Mission:
The mission of RAJE is to ensure that the current generation of, 18 – 30 year old, Russian American Jews be provided with the Jewish education, social bonding and positive inspiration needed to sufficiently strengthen their sense of Jewish peoplehood, thereby increasing the likelihood that they:

Establish a Jewish household

Affiliate themselves with and be involved in the life of the Jewish community

Fulfill their spiritual needs through the study and practice of Judaism

Develop a strong connection with the State of Israel
Results:
Each year, approximately 750 students complete RAJE fellowship programming. As a direct result, most have remained involved in Jewish communal life by actively participating in follow-up programming and/or have found alternate venues of engagement within the community; 50% have chosen to continue their Jewish education in one form or another, 30% are now involved in UJA Federation network agencies, in leadership positions and/or other capacities.
