Dimitry was born in 1987 in Zhodino, a small town near Minsk, Belarus. Three generations of his family lived together. Dimitry’s childhood was filled with care and attention. When he was 13 he decided to volunteer as part of a local school initiative. He realized that he loved it and a couple of years later was a mentor for his peers in a seminar on informal education. He has been involved ever since. In 2011 Dimitry became an active member of Minsk Hillel, taking part in various activities and programs. He believes that it is his grandparent’s influence and heritage that have made such a strong impact on him, and have led him to feel so connected to the older generation’s experience and life stories. Strong family bounds and care for each other are the values he seeks in people and promote in himself. We all have so much to share: knowledge, understanding, hopes and aspirations. Young people also have what to teach the older generation. This is the key to successful interaction. Dimitry is developing a project together with several Jewish organizations, including the Jewish Student Cultural Centre Hillel, JCC Emuna, Hesed, JAFI, and the JDC supported project Metsuda to strengthen inter-generational relations.
