Elena, having the Jewish roots, it is no wonder that she was a part of the big volunteer direction. Already more than a year she is an active participant in almost all volunteer directions of the “Leagues of Volunteers”. Elena considers that if there is time and desire, then they should be directed to the help to those who directly need it.
The advantage of the volunteer organizations is an opportunity to try yourself in the organization of something really grandiose that is not always managed to be made in an usual life. And the work in a team she likes very much. The main reason, for which Elena is engaged in the volunteering, is a sincere smile on faces of various people.

I have worked as a choreographer for many years, and now I am supervising «Le hava» dance studio. Three years ago I brought my grandson to the program “Logic” of the project “Children’s Initiative”, where I got known with activities of the organization, and saw with what enthusiasm do wards practice folk and ballroom dancing. That is the way I began to help them in this field. During these three years the studio «Le hava» has become a real hallmark of Hesed! In my working life, I have released a lot of students, but few of them are engaged in folk dances with such passion. That is what motivates me to continue volunteering.

I am 16 years old. I am a vocational school student. Besides, I go to choreography school and take part in fire shows. I have been attending the Jewish Community Center all my life. I take an active part in many Jewish Community projects, help organize concerts, performances, and festive events. I have even volunteered as a madrichim at the summer camp.
I have decided to become a volunteer because I like to help people and I love children. As a volunteer, I gain experience, develop new valuable skills and knowledge.
In my view, a volunteer is a person who voluntarily and free of charge helps those in need. I believe that our activity is useful and necessary.

I learned about the volunteer network from my friends with the common interests.  And when I wanted to register the Grandma into the project “The  Dream  does not age” I wanted myself and became a magician.  Older people have forgotten long ago how to dream and especially that feeling when your dream is fulfilled.  It is a pleasure for me to help people.  I like to make them happy.  To help people in those things that they themselves, probably, may fail or it is very difficult for them to do it.   People should always help each other because it is the meaning of human existence, in my opinion.  Without the aid, if everyone would by himself only — the chaos comes and it does not bring anything  good.

Vladislav Shurovsky is one of the most active volunteers of our Organization “League of the Jewish Mutual Assistance». He participats in many volunteer projects and promotions. If you ask him for the help, Vladislav never refuses. Here is some information that Vladislav says about himself:
“Hello. I am twenty years old, my name is Vladislav Shurovsky, I study the political sciences, I am interested in many things, and namely, I am much interested in the World War II, in the history of different epochs, in technology and my great interest is in the knowledge of the space.
The volunteer movement I entered almost by chance, it was the invitation of the head of the “League of the Jewish Mutual Assistance”, and partly he was my friend.

Very often people ask me why I am volunteering? For that question, I always answer — I do the volunteer work, because it is initially very interesting. In addition to this, it is a very important factor for me the support to the Jewish traditions and the community in particular.
Unfortunately, I faced the fact that except ourselves, the volunteers, who are led by the idea, no one, as it turned out, cannot even help to the lonely old people. The Volunteering, in my opinion, helps to unite the Jewish youth.
Finally, the volunteering gives me positive emotions, endless energy and a totally new social circle of communication.»
