Jookender Mission and Approach

Jookender Mission and Approach

Jookender supports, strengthens, and sustains Russian speaking Jewish communities in Greater Boston, New England, and the world. We work every day to reconnect non-affiliated Jews and people interested in Judaism to these larger Jewish communities--at their pace, on their time, without membership fees, pressure or proselytizing. Our approach simply introduces and exposes people to Judaism's rich history, rituals, and traditions.

In a welcoming, non-judgmental environment, Jookender offers family-friendly programs and activities that help Russian speaking Jewish individuals and families find their place in the Boston Jewish community and beyond.

A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Jookender's programs and activities are led by professionally trained, knowledgeable, and multi-lingual staff who know, teach, and demonstrate Jewish values. Working directly with families, educators, and volunteers, Jookender sparks a love of Israel and Judaism by building family bonds and community bridges.
