International CEO assistant and Project director, Taglit Birthright Israel
Prior to participating in Birthright Israel, Victoria (Vika) Barzman wasn't even slightly involved in Jewish communal life. However, after returning from her Birthright Israel experience in 2003 she immediately got involved. She served for six years as Deputy Director of the Russian Hillel in St. Petersburg. She has participated in international projects such as Ta-Shma Program, the World Council of Jewish Communal Service and CLI Charlie Award. Vika made aliyah in 2010. In Israel, she continues to work with Jewish communities in FSU as a Birthright Coordinator. Currently, she is the FSU Program Director of Taglit Birthright Israel.
