Russian-Jewish Cultural Center Heritage, Inc., vision, mission, and values apply to all of our business operations in the community we serve. It is our intent to put the best interests of our employees, volunteers, clients, and community at the forefront of the center’s strategies and goals. We are committed to providing the highest level of service and upholding our values and ethical standards in all of our center’s activities:
• Drive for Results

In partnership with local colleges, universities, and non-profit organizations, we are always striving to enhance our center’s performance and provide access to community members.
The Russian-American market is made up of 5.1 million consumers – 2.04% of the US Population and the average of 4.5% of the population in the top 10 metropolitan areas. Over the past decade, the community has increased its awareness of the vast learning traditions and culture of the Jewish people that developed over thousands of years. Still, it is our belief that too little attention has been paid to the complex and diverse topic of heritage and history of Jews and the Russian-speaking community residing in various regions of the United States, including in Washington State.
Therefore, the purpose of the Russian-Jewish Cultural Center Heritage, Inc., is to preserve our community’s cultural heritage as well as build neighborhood communications in a meaningful way that will be an asset to the community at large. The Center is endeavoring to establish our contribution to American culture and history, as well as our impact on the culture of local community, and the development of a unique ethno – cultural phenomenon.
The Center is contributing to self-identification by Russians and Jews through dissemination of linguistic and cultural knowledge, most specifically about the cultural heritage and historical traditions of the Jewish and Russian people. The Center is working towards unification and development of the Russian-Jewish community and strengthens its relations with local authorities and other cultural organizations as well as developing good citizenship skills awareness. One of the most significant benefits of our center is a uniqueness of reaching out to the public through our cultural and educational programs, which are aimed at a broad audience of Jews and non-Jews.
