We provide pathways to engage in Jewish life.


We believe in an inclusive and vibrant Jewish community where all members feel seen, understood, and supported. Together with our partners, we connect Jews to meaningful, joyful Jewish experiences. We provide opportunities to engage for families, young adults, and individuals at every stage of life, and by creating meaningful connections to Israel.


With your support, we build Jewish community and strengthen Jewish identity

    This year, due to COVID, we delivered Rosh Hashanah kits to PJ Library families at home. Samuel and Ariana couldn’t wait to get their Rosh Hashanah kit into the house according to their mom, Sherri! Through PJ library we provide lots of ideas for families observing holidays at home throughout the year.

    200 community members came together to bake Challah as Twin Cities Chef David Fhima welcomed us into his home for the first virtual Great Big Challah Bake. It was a warm, chamish evening of community and delicious bread making!

    "RAJMN is meaningful to me because it brings our community together. It's people who come from Russian Jewish families like mine, so we all have that similarity," said Sarah Braginsky, a participant in Russian American Jews in Minnesota's Teen Fellowship Program. This past year, 30 high school students explored who they are, community and Jewish life. The students created holiday events and raised money for Holocaust survivors and war veterans.
