We are an empowering and supportive community of over 7000 young Russian-speaking soldiers, students and young professionals - most of whom moved to Israel without family. Our weekend retreats, excursions, professional mentoring and study evenings, cultural activities, volunteer, and holiday events are helping young Israeli immigrants thrive personally and professionally in their new home, in an atmosphere of community, pluralism, Jewish literacy and Jewish Peoplehood.
Mazal tov to Ayala and Stav on the birth of their beautiful Sabra son!
And Mazal tov to Leah and Maxim on their wedding and for creating another Shishi Shabbat Yisraeli romantic legend. They met on the bus in June on the way to our 56th Shishi Shabbat Seminar on the Kinneret. (Max drove all the way from Eilat to meet that bus.) The morning after their wedding, they boarded our bus in Jerusalem at 7 a.m. to our 59th Seminar and celebrated their first Shabbat together and Sheva Brachot in the warm company of 50 friends from Shishi Shabbat Yisraeli! To joyful occasions and many beautiful new families in Am Yisrael!
November 22 & 30, 2018 - Tel Aviv and Beersheva
Shishi Shabbat Yisraeli together with Kosher Quiz attracted packed halls in Tel Aviv and Haifa to compete in teams and solve riddles connected to Chanuka, Science, synagogues around the world, popular Israeli and Russian music and other Jewish and general trivia. The first three best teams won prizes. The same game was conducted in 7 other countries, so the participants of our events were able to compare their results with Jewish young people around the world!

I enjoy these evenings together and learn many useful skills to help me adapt to Israel practically and culturally.
Our Israeli Cinema Club helps me understand modern Israeli Hebrew and culture and just laugh and relax. Our lectures with Alex and Vika about effective family budgets and the tax system in Israel addressed a lot of my personal financial questions.
Mostly it is good to know that there are people I can consult with when I need help. Thank you to Yana and the lecturers.
Shishi Shabbat Yisraeli developed active branches with Area Coordinators in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Haifa, in addition to our national programs.
