Young Russian speaking Jewish leaders were trained to fight the de-legitimization of Israel during a conference held this weekend in Maastricht, Holland, organized by The Jewish Agency for Israel and the Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs Ministry. During the conference, leaders from 12 countries across Europe were trained in public diplomacy skills in the age of new media. The educational conference was intended to help develop a young Russian speaking Jewish leadership across Europe.

 

The conference, which concluded today, was attended by over 200 Russian speaking young Jewish leaders between the ages of 20 and 30 who have been involved in Jewish Agency programs in recent years. The Jewish Agency estimates that hundreds of thousands of Russian speaking are currently living in central Europe and most are not involved in traditional community organizations or activities. This conference was intended to strengthen their connection to the Jewish people and the State of Israel.
