Slutsk has a small Jewish community that historically received support from other charitable agencies working in the territory of Belarus, receiving a budget and following the programmes being set. However, due to the small size of the community, the agencies withdrew their support to focus on the major cities, leaving Slutsk with no tools to self-develop.
The Together Plan has connected Slutsk to other partners and they now feel supported. We are helping the community to initiate new projects, introduce Hebrew to their Sunday School and help members learn how to self-manage. This was an elderly community when The Together Plan first started working in Slutsk, nevertheless Jewish people living in Slutsk have been attracted to the developments and there is now an active and growing youth presence.
