Dear Friends,


This  has been a wonderful year for RJeneration and we thank you for being a part of our growing community and for challenging us to create bigger and better programs every year since 2006.


We would like you to consider an end-of-the-year gift (tax-deductible!) so that we can continue to do what we do best - innovative RuJew- focused programs. As you know RJeneration is a small, volunteer-run, grassroots organization with big dreams and your contribution, be it $10, $20, or $300, will have tremendous impact.


You may have joined us for our monthly Shabbat dinners or Happy Hours, taken part in cooking lessons, hikes, film screenings and debates, FILMIK games, family holiday celebrations. or attended our Meshugeneh House of DIY. We pride ourselves on unique and affordable programs, and with your help will continue creating them for you. Please take a moment to make a donation however large or small, to show your support and interest in the future of RJeneration.


If you need a donation receipt for tax purposes, please use this link and put RJeneration in the designation line (this will be via the Jewish Community Relations Council of NY).  If you don't need a receipt, please paypal your amount of choice to us at Buttons for both options are also available below.

Thank you and best wishes for a happy and healthy new year!

About RJeneration
Born in the Soviet Union -- made in America

We came to America as kids and teens, brought by our parents. Some were born enroute, and some were born here. We are a generation of Americans with a second culture and language, a Russian heritage, Jewish roots, and a defining immigrant experience. We've juggled our "hybrid" Russian-Jewish-American identity throughout our lives.

Many of us went to the top high schools and colleges in the country. English is our primary language, but we still speak Russian. Runglish is also our style. We're Jewish, despite yeshiva traumas. We're in our 20's and 30's, busy building successful careers in every imaginable field. Some of us are already household names - Sergey Brin, Gary Shteyngart, David Bezmozgis, Lenny Krayzelberg, Mila Kunis, Regina Spektor. Many others are sure to follow and make their mark.

The RJeneration community brings us together to network, make connections, explore the richness of our unique Russian-Jewish-American identity, showcase and celebrate RJeneration's rising stars, and engage in Russian and Jewish life all around us.
