Dec. 17, Jerusalem – Yesterday, Tuesday, Chaim Chesler, founder of Limmud FSU (former Soviet Union), met with Foreign Affairs Minister Avigdor Lieberman in Jerusalem. Chesler outlined the work of Limmud FSU among Russian-speaking Jews – mainly young adults between 20 and 40 — during the eight years of its existence, pointing out that Limmud FSU events have already attracted some 30,000 participants in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, as well as Russian speakers in Israel, the United States, Canada and early next year, in Australia.
Lieberman said that he heard a great deal about Limmud FSU and that he was greatly impressed by the educational work Limmud FSU is doing on Jewish culture and identity. He said that he fully endorsed its work and supported it unconditionally. “Your work is of fundamental significance and importance to a large number of Jews all over the world, many of whom were cut off from Jewish culture and learning for decades,” said Lieberman.
