От Сиона до Силикона: Russian Jews of Silicon Valley

Our Russian Language programming is run by Rabbi Ilana Baird. Rabbi Ilana has served communities in Russia, Germany, Israel, and the United States.  She founded a liberal synagogue in Haifa and is a graduate of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion’s Israeli Rabbinical Seminary program. Rabbi Ilana is beginning her second year teaching Hebrew at the JCC. You can reach her at RabbiIlana@svjcc.org.
