Valentina Nemirovskaya is the Director of Hillel in Khabarovsk, in Far East Russia. After spending several years in Israel, Valentina moved back to Russia seven years ago. Growing up, she attended a traditional Jewish school. She first became involved with Hillel when the director invited her to become the Shabbat Coordinator. This led to her participation in training seminars until she eventually became Hillel's Educational Director. In this role she worked in different capacities: recruitment, running the Young Leadership school, organizing tzedek projects and more. As this particular Hillel chapter is establishing itself day-by-day, Valentina is constantly growing and learning. In January, she was promoted to Hillel Director and has energetically added fundraising to the rest of her duties. She strongly believes that it is important to share experiences and learn from one another.
