From the desk of Rabbi David Ellenson
Dear friends of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion:

For the seventh consecutive year, the HUC-JIR Pesach Project will bring fourteen HUC-JIR students to the Former Soviet Union, where they will visit and conduct seders in 28 cities in Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine - extending Passover's message of redemption and freedom. We take pride in the work of our students in strengthening the renaissance of Jewish life in the Former Soviet Union, in partnership with the World Union for Progressive Judaism, as well as the role that our students play in their student pulpits and internships in over 350 Reform congregations, educational institutions, and Jewish agencies and organizations throughout North America each year.

To see them in action, please click here.

With heartfelt wishes for a sweet Passover, blessed with joy and peace,
Rabbi David Ellenson
