"When I first went to a Project Kesher seminar in Moscow, I asked, “Where is this money coming from?” I was told it came from personal donations from American women. Words failed me; I was speechless. This is something sacred, something sanctified, when people think of someone who is far away, someone they’ll never meet."
- Bella B., Donetsk, Ukraine, Project Kesher Women’s Group Leader
Support Project Kesher
Your support of Project Kesher makes a difference in the lives of women, families, communities, and entire countries.
At Project Kesher, we have been investing by our values for 30 years, ensuring that women have the tools they need to succeed. Project Kesher invests in women’s leadership training and then supports women with programming ideas and a network of peers and mentors. Our initial investment in a new leader is about $400. That woman returns to her community and immediately begins to engage others in Jewish, interfaith and feminist programs. The return is a staggering $10,000+, per leader trained, if time is valued at just $5/hour. The average graduate generates one program a month for eight years. Many become lifelong PK activists.

Project Kesher has a program where our U.S. supporters are matched one-to-one with a leader from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus or Israel. Through weekly meetings by Skype with your partner, you help them practice English. It is a wonderful connection to make and we provide training and support.
SUPPORT THE PK TORAH RETURN PROJECT
Project Kesher has brought 36 Torah Scrolls to the region to date. Often, connecting synagogues with surplus Torahs on hand to PK communities in need. All Torah Scrolls are sent off with a formal Torah Return Ceremony. Torah Scrolls can be dedicated in memory or honor of someone special.
