Еще на заре зарождения движения по созданию благотворительных организаций «Хэсэд», их создателями был сформулирован девиз: «Волонтерство – одна из основ, на которых стоит Хэсэд». Сейчас ни один центр невозможно представить без его благотворительной работы и мощного волонтерского движения.
Новый импульс к своему развитию и расширению волонтерское движение в черкасском «Хэсэде» получило после того, как весной 2015 года был создан «Волонтерский центр», представляющий Всеукраинское движение волонтеров «Volunteer Community», который тогда возглавила Юлия Зусман.
За непродолжительное время вокруг «Волонтерского центра» объединилась целая команда активистов, наполнивших его деятельность новыми идеями и инициативами. Благодаря слаженной работе и постоянному обмену опытом с волонтерами других регионов, удалось охватить опекой людей разных возрастных категорий и социальных групп.

I am a teacher-volunteer with a big work experience. I am not indifferent to everything that occurs in Jewish community and not only there. I managed to start many projects, among which there are Sunday school that became one of the best Sunday schools in Ukraine and the first Jewish kindergarten “Prakhim” at the municipal pre-school institution №81. This project was launched with incredible difficulties and it has been working since 2000. I have worked it up and successfully presented it when I studied at the Jerusalem University according to the Melton program for teachers of the Jewish education.I have also initiated and organized such projects as:
1) Publication of the book-almanac “Shofar” about the history of Jews living in the Cherkassy region (assistance in preparation and publication);
2) Organization of a traveling exhibition “Anne Frank. History Lesson” and holding the city competition of compositions in this subject;
3) Help in perpetuation of the Righteous gentile A. Shulezhko (organization of anniversary actions in the city, edition of the book “Pam’yaty Slavetnoy Zhemlyachky”, participation and help in installation of a memorial board in the city);
4) Publication of methodical works and scenarios of the Jewish holidays (“New Jewish School” Publishing house, St. Petersburg).
5) Writing poems and songs for children, poetic translations from Hebrew and Yiddish for vocal collectives.
The Jewish period of my life began in 1993 when I returned to my hometown from Poltava. In 1994 my volunteer activity in the Jewish community had started. Doing good deeds, having satisfaction from the fact that you help somebody, and a pleasure from self-realization is what unites all volunteers! I still continue my volunteer activity in the community. I am the Head of Literary club in Hesed and every month, even several times a month, hold thematic meetings with the participants of the Jewish revival programs. I have brought up many generations of the Jewish children. Together with the knowledge of the Jewish culture I strive to foster the desire to do good.

I am a candidate of technical sciences, docent, member of the board of the Ukrainian Association of Cooks, head of the department of hotel and restaurant business. Jewish community plays an important role in my family’s life. I have two children, and thanks to its help, one of my daughters had the possibility to receive necessary medical care and get another chance to live. Thanks to the Volunteer Center, we may continue the chain of kindness and teach our children to appreciate life, to be generous and open. Just helping each other, we can save ourselves as a nation. As for me, volunteering is manifestation of my position as a citizen, the position of friendly attitude to people around me. This is an opportunity to use all my professional and life experience there, where it can really help somebody.

My name is Eugene Eydel, I am 37 years old. I am a historian-ethnographer by profession. I am engaged in research in the field of Old Russian and Byzantine sphragistics. I am the author of scientific articles on document prints of Kievan Rus. My hobby is search activity, preservation and publication of material objects of history and culture. I also studied Jewish history and culture of Cherkasy region. When I heard about the community, I have brought my children to Jewish Sunday school and a Jewish group ” Prahim” in kindergarten №81. Since then, I am an active volunteer, and I help in organization of events, which are held in Hesed for children, teenagers, wards. When volunteer center was established in the community, I had the opportunity of self-realization through volunteer activities. When I came to the community and Hesed for the first time, I asked myself: “How can I help, and how can I be helpful?” I try to make a contribution to the development of the volunteer center, share my thoughts and ideas with volunteers, and help in organizing and conducting community events, festivals and master-classes. I am also involved in deliver of gifts for Jewish holidays to the old clients of Hesed, so they can receive congratulations to Purim, Hanukkah, Sabbath, and Victory Day. As for me, to be a volunteer is an opportunity to change people around me and to make our world a better, cleaner, kinder place to live.
