As we bring you our first newsletter of the year, we would like to start with a resounding “Happy New Year”. The closing month of 2019 was a bumper month full of activity. We welcomed Vlad Zaiko, our Development Coordinator from Minsk, to the UK for a very busy itinerary and his debut at Limmud. Our Youth for Youth members were hard at work; planning for summer camp, leading an end of year Kabbalat Shabbat service; and hosting a cross-border virtual Chanukah gathering. Chanukiot lit up across Belarus and we were invited into the Mitzvah Day offices to receive certificates for Belarusian communities. Finally, we rounded up the year with a UK-Belarus team training to get us ‘systems ready’ for 2020.
Here’s to a very exciting year ahead.
All the best,
The Together Plan team
