Description

When the Soviet Union collapsed, much of its Jewish population emigrated. But those who remained were often disconnected from Judaism. It was into this vacuum that Hillel stepped in, gradually building a network of Hillel centers across the Former Soviet Union, serving tens of thousands of Jewish students – both those who retained a Jewish identity but more significantly those who had become alienated and estranged from their roots – and creating a Jewish future in the FSU.

Rabbi Yossie Goldman led Hillel’s efforts to rebuild Jewish identity among university-age students in the Former Soviet Union. In Let My People Grow, Goldman tells the story of Hillel in the FSU from its humble beginnings in Moscow and its first steps and missteps in the chaos that followed the fall of communism through to nourishing an indigenous Jewish leadership that sustains the community to this day.
