They present themselves as altruistic but their goal is to convert people to ultra orthodox religion. It's creepy. If you attend an event they will hound you.
Review from Guidestar
Very nice but expect to be badgered for donations very soon. Went to a weekend program and thought the speakers were excellent but am not sure if I should donate to promote this. Seems everyone is already where the head of the group wants and do not understand where the money would go.
Review from Guidestar
I listened to online classes given by a rabbi who was a former classmate of mine. I am so proud that the Jewish people has organizations such as this one that reach out to so many people in a user-friendly way.
very bad, completely not religious kehila, kissing, hugging and so on.Previously was more religious Waste of money.Should be closed or redone completely.Shame
Like many people, I am concerned about the possibility of losing my job, or at least losing work hours. So I watch my budget. I found out about RAJE from the Internet. I'm glad I went to RAJE fo rRosh Hashana. I loved every minute of it!!! Not only were the meals very affordable and delicious, but i enjoyed real comeraderie and friendliness. the services were in Hebrew, Russian, and English. There were Dvrei Torah (lectures) in English, and othrs in Russian. thre was something for EVERYONE, no matter what languages you understood. And I saw the real commitment to not leaving anyone out. I know that people could pay for meals by helping out instead of giving money. Even though I do, thank God, have the money now, many people really don't. I'll continue to do so as long as RAJE exits!
I've had a really positive experience at RAJE over the past 2 years. When ever I wanted to be around a warm group of jewish ppl and needed spiritual uplifting from the very knowledgeable Rabbis, Raje was there for me. I can rely on them every shabbos to have warm delicious healthy shabbos meals, many torah lectures to choose from and people my age I can interact with. They continue to put in an unsurpassed amount of effort and dedication to the jewish cause. I'm very happy to have been introduced to such an organization.
I've had an incredible experience. Besides making this experience fun, the rabbi's and mentors provide valuable lessons about life and our actions.
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.
I had an amazing Raje experience. I learned so much about my jewish heritage, and met so many great people. The staff at Raje was always reaching out to us above and beyond what i would normally expect. The experience bonded all of us like a family, and raje welcomed us with open arms. This is a great organization, that I am very proud to be a part of.
I have traveled with this organization, all were wonderful experiences. Have been part of services as well as been part of classes offered, and Shabbat dinners.
