Professionals from Jewish nonprofit organizations working with Russian-speaking Jewish (RSJ) communities toward Jewish engagement will come together today and tomorrow for the 2016 COJECO RSJ Symposium.

The Symposium brings together the invaluable experience and knowledge found among Jewish professionals from different metropolitan areas in the United States and Canada who have been working first hand with the Russian-speaking Jewish community toward the goals of Jewish identity development and community building.

Building on the success of last year’s inaugural conference, the 2016 Symposium is dedicated to helping RSJ engagement professionals maximize the impact of their work. To this end, these two days are designed to explore the intended impact of RSJ engagement, how we measure successful engagement, and what tools we have to advocate on behalf of RSJ engagement in the future.
