In 2005 I graduated from the Philological Faculty of the Kuban State University, and then for several years have been studying Tanakh and biblical Hebrew, was interested in Middle Eastern culture.
In 2011 – 2012 I started to work as a volunteering health visitor in Hesed. When I got to know better the activities of the community center, I was surprised by their variety and breadth. Thus, appeared the idea of a new site, which was inspired by the leadership program Metsuda.

I’ve been managing the site shalom-tikva for several years as a volunteer.

Now I am actively helping to develop the volunteering movement being “a deputy for difficult questions”.

About the Jewish life in the city I learned after a trip in 2014 to Taglit. The Community festivals and a lot of new teenagers have sucked me in this cosy Jewish world. In the community there are many programs where you can help to different people: children, retired, veterans and to the people with additional needs. I like to participate in volunteer projects, because it is a good habit which makes us kinder and the world – better.

What does volunteering mean for me? This means to live with heart, to do what you can without expecting payment or praise. I like very much to be a volunteer. I’ve experienced it myself, and I believe that to help others, to take care of others, to enjoy and to have fun with the process is the most natural desire of a person.
