About 400 people attended Australia’s first Limmud conference tailored especially for Russian-speaking Jews.

The events held last week in Sydney and near Melbourne were organized by the local branch of Limmud FSU, a network of groups that uses the concept of Limmud conferences to connect communities of Russian-speaking Jews on four continents.

Chaim Chesler, a former Jewish Agency executive who founded Limmud FSU in 2006, told JTA that the event in Sydney “reflects a determination to leave no stone unturned in the endeavor to connect Jews from the former Soviet Union to Judaism, Israel and the Jewish agenda wherever they live. Where they can be found, we will follow.”
