RAJEing since 2009
Regina wasn't really connected to any Jewish
life or Jewish organization in 2009. She didn't
feel very comfortable in those environments. "It
was just not my scene." After Regina discovered
RAJE, she immediately saw the changes in her life. "Rabbi Reuven
Ibragimov and Rabbi Dovid Goldshteyn put life in a different perspective;
I started thinking in terms of community."
Her community was Brooklyn College, so with the help of newly
acquired Jewish confidence and knowledge, Regina started to find
ways to get involved in Jewish Student life on Campus. Regina found
a place to grow at Hillel of Brooklyn College. She became the President
of the Russian Jewish Club and it was a great experience, where she
could share with other Russian Jewish students her love for RAJE and
her new appreciation of Jewish values, traditions and heritage.
This year Regina became the President of Hillel, uniting all different
Jewish groups and students and running various programs on campus.
"My experience at RAJE allowed me to become a leader on campus
and create fun, educational projects and programs for other students."
Regina is only beginning her life in the Jewish world. She is looking
forward to doing more semesters at RAJE. "I want to learn more about
my Jewish identity, my Jewish traditions and history, I want to be a
better leader for the students at Brooklyn College and be able to
influence others with the knowledge and experience that I received at
