Meet our new Russian emissary

Last week, I had the honor of meeting Irin Kutman Levy, the community's new Russian emissary.    Her official title is "JAFI Emissary for the FSU Emigrés Community San Francisco and Bay Area" - say that 10 times fast!  Irin is engaging with our Russian community, hoping to make it more vibrant and to help the community explore its diverse Jewish identities. I've asked her to introduce herself to you.  If you would like to get in touch with Irin, call her at 415.512.6285 or send an email to
