Project STARS (Student Torah Alliance for Russian Speakers) helps many young people from the former Soviet Union learn Torah and Judaism. Within the framework of this program hundreds of young people learn about the richness of Jewish culture, its philosophy, history and traditions – all without interrupting their routine life, their work or principal studies at schools and universities. The students of this program celebrate Kabbalat Shabbath and Kabbalat Chag; they organize picnics together as well as seminars on Judaism and Hebrew culture.
