Zoom in to Zoymen 2020
Join us for our first ever global, online conference. Zoymen 2020 (Yiddish: ‘seed’) is an exploration into the unknown world of Jewish Belarus and beyond. We will be featuring prominent speakers from London, Minsk, New York, Los Angeles and many more.
Sessions include: An archive of stories from the voices of the forgotten Holocaust survivors in Belarus; how to develop engagement in isolated Jewish communities; being a Belarusian Chernobyl survivor leading on the New York COVID task force; and the building of a Jewish cultural heritage trail.
Our aim at The Together Plan is to show how communities can come together to build relationships and communication is an important part of that experience. In order to show that language is not a barrier to understanding, we will be running select sessions in both English and Russian! Hopefully encouraging others to do the same in the future! Make sure to keep an eye out in the programme for these sessions.
This event is organised and directed by members of our very own Youth for Youth movement; Young adults across the world achieving change for the better through social action.
Come together on this journey of our shared history, heritage and culture towards a new envisaged Jewish future.
together, we are stronger.
