Tanya Gutsol grew up in sunny Kiev, Ukraine, where she worked in publishing and then later she began working for Hillel. Five years ago, she moved to the U.S. and continued to work for Hillel in various capacities. Currently, she's a Program Director at Brooklyn College, a Masa Israel Russian Community Liaison and a resident of Russian Moishe House NYC.
Besides her job as a community professional, Tanya runs Jewlicious.ru, a Russian language blog modeled along the lines of Jewlicious.com with an emphasis on content related to Israel, the Jewish world and pop culture. The blog entertains and informs young Jewish Russian language readers while fostering greater unity across previously impenetrable linguistic barriers.
Tanya has been a member of ROI since 2007.
