Ruth Ouazana, founder of Limoud France, is also representing the Jewish Scouts worldwide as General Secretary of the IFJS. She worked as a lawyer for ten years in France before moving to the U.K. then to Israel. She is very passionate about the connection between Jews and their Jewish identity, as well as their relationship with other communities and faiths. Ruth now lives in Lyon, with her man and his 4 children, and they have created together "Tomorrow's Roots", an organization which aims to break down barriers, ignorance and prejudices.
Ruth has created in 2017 with her partner an organization that is devoted to laying the foundation for better understanding and coexistence among different religions and communities in France. Through the creation of a sustained dialogue between young professionals, targeting Christian, Muslim, Secular and Jewish communities,the objective is to enable them to meet, understand each other culture and religion and to get to know the other’s identities through conversation, readings, cultural programs in France and experiential journeys in Israel. The goal is to create bridges between the different communities in order to together build a better future.
