Igor is a community builder and rabbinic student based in London. Originally from Chelyabinsk, Russia, he began his journey as a leader for the local reform community and then studied in Moscow and Jerusalem. Igor has extensive experience working with youth in the FSU and internationally. He is also an accomplished musician. In his free time Igor plays guitar and writes his own music. After co-chairing Limmud FSU Europe (an event which attracted 750 Russian-speaking Jews), Igor recognised the potential in developing a global Russian-speaking Jewish network and building bridges between Russian-speaking Jews and local communities all over the world. Igor believes that modern Jewry should take a global approach to Russian-speaking Jews and Russian-speaking Jews should be empowered to take an active part in world Jewry. Igor is a founder of Project ‘Dor’ (for ‘Dovrei Rusit’, Hebrew for Russian-speaking) that aims to develop international programmes for Russian-speaking Jews. Dor started as a pilot project in London with 50 members and has been growing ever since. During the summer Dor’s volunteers run a family summer camp in Europe for Russian-speaking Jewish families from all over the world. Dor’s vision is to create a self-sufficient international Jewish collaboration and networking platform for all age groups where Russian-speaking Jews will feel an integral part of the world Jewry and experience relevant and modern Jewish life.
