RAJE is an amazing organization. I attanded RAJE classes for 6 month learning about Jewish history and religion. I was exposed to a lot of new ideas and experiences. The staff of RAJE is very dedicated. They are always there for you both in terms of providing guidence as well as education. Following the 6 month classes, I went with this organization to Israel, where I learned about my culture and my roots. It was a very fun and educational experience which was organized extremely well.

RAJE provides outstanding lectures for young jews of Russian and non-Russian origin on the subjects of Jewdaism. Young rabbis are well versed in the subject and help the audiences relate Torah teachings to the modern life. The atmosphere is lively and humorous. Everyone is engaged. This organization does a great service not only in line with the Jewish values but helps young people select a virtuous lifestyle serving local communities and humanity in general.

RAJE has been a life changing experience for me. I have developed a network of friends, peers and mentors. I came to RAJE as an ignorant kid looking for a fun trip and I came out as an educated leader, with a greater grasp of my Jewish identity. RAJE has become a second home to me.

I was a participant of one of the trips to Israel as well as I had a chance to attend history classes conducted by RAJE. From my point of view, RAJE is a great organization that UNITE young people from different backgrounds, and the most important, make them to be proud of their origin. I was grown up in the former Soviet Union, and at the time of living there, I have experienced and loved the Russian culture. When I came to USA I didn't know much about Jewish communities in USA, I didn't know much about culture, religion, and Jewish way of life. Although, I have always felt that I am a Jewish. When I got a chance to visit Israel through RAJE, I was a very happy that I will visit a country, which I always dreamed to see, and this trip will be with young people like me. These three weeks that I spent in Israel were a tremendous experience for me. For me, it was the trip that made me feel what this country means for the whole world, it gave me the experience of the Jewish way of life. For three weeks I have lived in the atmosphere of Israeli way of life. It was very important to me to feel it, to feel the atmosphere of the Jewish way of life. And I don't know if I had such a feeling if I simply visited country with my family or friends. After I came from Israel, I have attended some history classes, where I had also a chance to get answers on very important questions for me. I think that RAJE plays a great role in life of many young people, since it helps to find something very important, it helps to experience a great heritage, RAJE helps to find real friends and helps us to be proud of our roots.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Their willingness to UNITE young people. Their willingness to make feel young people as a one community, who has same goals and beliefs. RaJE's desire to make every person happy about their heritage.

Great staff, great programs & events... The organization has inspired many young people from the community that had previously been thought of as unaffiliated, uninformed, and uninvolved in Jewish life.

I just started the Raje Leadership program and i love it. The classes are both fun and educational. Rabbis are amazing, all of them. They are young, hip, cool and can relate to young people like myself more than anything. Also, the fact that i get to meet a lot of new people through this program is a huge plus.

I participated in an educational series (a number of weeks, once a week) of courses RAJE gave and went with them on a trip to Israel. Both were free for me. As a 23 year old man, starting out working, and having my own business, I am very grateful for having for having been exposed to the speakers which spoke at the classes. They were all leaders of their industries; real estate developers doing billion dollar deals, executives who lead companies in the national spotlight, ect. I understand more about Judaism as a religion, culture, and a people since the program. The rabbis were an inspiration to me, and I still think about the example they set and aim to do the kind of good that they are doing. On the trip to Israel, I had what was probably the first strong spiritual experience of my life, and it's impossible to place a value on that. RAJE has been invaluable to me and, and I will always be grateful for the lessons I have learned and the experiences I've had. Thank you, Dmitry Kuzinets
