In Royter’s Kitchen
What? The mission of the project “In Royter’s Kitchen” is to promote Jewish living and organize Jewish social programs for Russian Jewish families to educate them about their Jewish roots, their heritage, and Israel and to help them become active members of the Russian Jewish community and American Jewish community.
Developing and implementing these programs for the members of the Russian Jewish community is essential to strengthen their Jewish identity, and reconnect them to Jewish culture, Israel and the Jewish Community of San Diego and feel comfortable in American day to day life.
- Events (organized around Shabbat and the Jewish holidays), for Russian speaking families to educate them about their Jewish roots, their heritage, and Israel
- Havurot (friendship circles) for Russian families to socialize and celebrate holidays and life cycle events
The combination of services offered by the program will help to effectively address the needs of immigrants from the former Soviet Union. These services will be designed to help them gain the information and skills necessary to allow them to become increasingly self-reliant, to improve their quality of life and to become better connected with other Russians and non-Russian Jews and the larger San Diego community
When? Programs will be offered year round.
