The Limmud FSU conference is organized by young participants from the Russian-Jewish community and is a volunteer organization. The organization is made up of young Jewish adults who are revitalizing Jewish communities and culture in countries of the former Soviet Union, and countries with Russian-speaking people around the world.

There are an estimated 750,000 to one million Russian-American Jews in the US, with about half living in New York and New Jersey.
