I came to the project “Jewish Revival” in early 2016. I try to participate actively in all project activities. In the summer of 2017, within the framework of a stationary summer camp, I was leading the project “Photostudio”, which enjoyed special success among children. Besides volunteering, I like drawing, burning wood, baking delicious pies that everyone loves at the volunteer center, sewing clothes for my family and myself. In addition, I take photographs of all the events taking place in the community, and I help with the equipment.

In the autumn of 2016, I was a volunteer madrih on the Shabbaton, dedicated to the autumn holidays. This was my second experience as a madrich. The first time I tried myself in this matter in March 2016 at a family seminar dedicated to Purim.

Oxana came to us as an experienced volunteer in social activities. She is a lawyer and activist who chose Lina Kostenko’s words as her life credo: “If I had my way, I would write everywhere in italics: there is much grief in the world, people, be mutually beautiful!”

She started to volunteer while studying at the Konotop Medical College and taking care of the babies left in the maternity ward. In addition, almost all her activities are related to the interests of people with disabilities, assistance of palliative patients, work with children …

But this is social activity. “It’s just incredible”, someone will think about her, but Oksana spend time with her family, too!

“Volunteering for me is when you not only worry for people who are in difficult life situations, but also are ready to help them for free.”

In our community Oksana has proved herself as a wonderful manager, a proactive and responsible team member. She is reliable and we are sure that everything will be done on time and at high level…

So we want to say: “Be like Oksana!”

My name is Anatoly. I have graduated from Kiev National Agricultural University as a zoo engineer. Since 2015 I do my best in household reparations in the framework of the project “House Master”, fixing furniture and household devices. For me volunteering is an opportunity to help people in need, to realize myself, and also my abilities.

Olga Nikitina. I am 24. 3 years I lived in Israel. I am the member of the volunteering Center from the day of its opening, because I often attend the Community Center “Thija”, and I couldn’t miss the new initiative, which is very useful for our community. As for me, the volunteering, first of all, is a pleasant possibility to help to the other people, and desirably, I am very glad to help with the things which I can do by myself. I became the co-author and the volunteer of the project “Kind Guest”. And I get much pleasure cooking according to the recipes of our ancestors, thereby, making the goodness to the members of my community in the present. People say, that my dishes are very tasty. And I think, it is so because I do it with all my love.

Tatiana is a student and in a few years will become a high class dentist. Tatiana regularly takes part in volunteering projects for children. She graduated from Jewish classical school for girls and entered prestigious medical university of St. Petersburg, but it wasn’t enough for her.  She is confident that children are aliens from another planet, unpredictable and charming, who never let you get bored.
