Eshkolot: A Taste of Ideas is an educational initiative focused on providing Moscow’s young intellectual crowd with the ability to take part in Jewish study programs. Often employing an edutainment format (education in combination with entertainment-type events), Eshkolot promotes traditional and modern Jewish and Israel study, thought, and ideas in contemporary Russian society in a non-threatening, open and engaging manner.
Eshkolot events take place in the center of Moscow’s intellectual life; venues include clubs, universities, libraries, galleries and parks.
Eshkolot Online Academy is an open learning environment with professional video lectures, podcasts, interviews and study materials, structured by subject matter, chronology and geography.
Eshkolot is supported by The Genesis Philanthropy Group and Avi Chai Foundation.
