While their lives have changed since the beginning of the Russian invasion in February, Moishe House Odessa residents, Artur, Konstantin and Daniel, along with Michael (Moishe House Community Manager) share their stories of perseverance and commitment to a community they have grown to love.

The Associated’s Baltimore-Odessa Partnership is 30 years strong and our people-to-people connections and support of organizations in Odessa, like Moishe House, are so meaningful to both communities – now more than ever.

Moishe House is an international organization that spans over 27 countries and reaches over 70,000 Jewish young adults. Every year, residents like Artur, Daniel and Konstantin plan innovative and engaging programs for their communities aimed at connecting individuals with their own Jewish identities.

Faces of Odessa – Real-life Experiences from Friends in Our Partner City During the Crisis in Ukraine is a recently launched video series that highlights the people of Odessa.
