Day 2 - Meet The ROIers! - "I Didn't Know There Were Jews In..."

ROI Community has members from over 50 different countries!

Today, we're shining the spotlight on a selection of our members who come from some of the world's smallest Jewish communities.

Misha Beshkins resides in ESTONIA where he works in IT and is an active member of the religious Jewish community.

Sumiko Zayon and William Miller are both from CUBA. Sumiko is a radio broadcaster and author. William has over 12 years experience implementing organizational health and education plans for the Cuban Jewish community.

Erik Meier is from BOLIVIA. He is an expert in the field of international development and manages his own consulting firm.

Mark Blanc and Mark Kisner both come from PERU. Mark Blanc has been described as a chef, blogger, publisher and clown! Mark Kisner uses soccer as a tool to teach core values to children, with the aim of cultivating the future leadership of the Peruvian Jewish community.

The well traveled Andrea Kasper currently resides in ICELAND, where she is dedicated to the foundation of a new type of Jewish school, 'Yadaim' which focuses on teaching students practical professional skills within Jewish values-oriented framework.

Moshe Madoi was born in UGANDA. He is currently studying at Yeshivat Hamivtar in Israel and plans to return to Uganda to work as the community's shochet (kosher animal slaughterer) and teach his fellow villagers about Judaism.
