In the course of the past seven years, the central focus of AVI CHAI’s work in the FSU has turned to reaching out to the widest and most diverse Jewish audience, which represents the overwhelming majority of post-Soviet Jewry. By extending beyond conventional Jewish establishment activities, we have identified what may be a golden opportunity to reach those young, well-educated Jews who rarely, if ever, participate in organized Jewish activity, and for whom the term “hidden Jews” is perhaps most applicable. These programs, all led by local Jewish leadership, are unique in Russia, paving the path to what we hope will be a model that can be strengthened and expanded in years to come.

The AVI CHAI Foundation has released a summary of data on day school enrollment changes between the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 school years. The data, collected by several organizations, including AVI CHAI, PEJE, RAVSAK, SSDSA and PARDeS shows that while day school enrollment has declined, the drop has not been nearly as steep as many educators and communal officials had predicted. Other highlights of the findings: larger schools (250 or more students) experienced an average drop of 3 percent; smaller schools were harder hit; South Florida suffered the greatest decreases; and emergency and other financial aid increased significantly.
