We continue the 130 year old tradition
of integrating Russian Jews into American Jewry
Then our language was Yiddish. Today our language is Russian. We want to learn more about our roots to enable the next generation of Russian-speaking American Jews to become proud of their Russian Jewish heritage, culture, language and strong connection to the land of Israel.
Our programs grew and developed reflecting the changing needs of the Russian-speaking Jewish community of the Bay Area.
Today Yom Rishon School offers a comprehensive cultural and educational program that brings families closer
to the world of Jewish tradition and to the modern State of Israel.
