As I look back over my first full year as Chairman, I am amazed at how much we have accomplished. From the very beginning I intended that we would try new paths, and we have. We joined with Hillel and established an award honoring the late Senator Lautenberg. We have developed a mutually beneficial relationship with the World Jewish Congress that recognizes the value of NCSEJ’s unique expertise. The office is about to move and we have changed our name.

Last September, NCSEJ led an American Jewish delegation to the 75th commemoration of the Babi Yar massacres in Kyiv. The commemoration was attended by thousands, and included participation of government representatives from Europe, Israel, and the United States. We celebrated the renovation of the formerly dilapidated memorial site into a beautiful plaza, a commitment by the Ukrainian government to promote Holocaust education, and the announcement of plans to build a multimillion dollar museum of Jewish history in Kyiv.

 

However, our vigilance was also tested, when a main boulevard in Kyiv was renamed after Stepan Bandera, an anti-Semitic nationalist from the 1940s. Even more disturbing was the fatal beating of a rabbi in Eastern Ukraine. NCSEJ works every day to confront these issues, with government officials and the local communities, to assure they do not go unpunished and prevent future acts.

 

In Washington, we had very productive meetings with the ambassadors from Azerbaijan, the Baltic states, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Ukraine.

 

Mark Levin and I attended the 20th anniversary of the Russian Jewish Congress in Moscow and held very constructive meetings with American Ambassador John Tefft — a great proponent for the Jewish community of Russia and a good friend of NCSEJ.

 

On June 7, we will be honoring our most recent past chairmen – Edward Robin, Richard Stone, and Stephen Greenberg – at a gala event in New York City. The event will not only honor these most deserving men, but will highlight the important work of NCSEJ. We hope you will all be there!

 

There is no doubt that the coming year will continue to be challenging for the Jewish communities we support. We are committed to making sure that none of them, no matter how large or small, are forgotten. We are planning a significant mission to some of the more remote communities in the former Soviet region, Ukraine, and Poland, and will keep you updated as plans develop.

 

The work NCSEJ does is not very often “front page news,” however, our quiet and behind the-scenes negotiations and advocacy have a profound effect on policies that affect Jews in Eurasia and Eastern Europe. And the support we receive from all of you in the NCSEJ family is deeply appreciated.

 

Finally, the more time I spend with NCSEJ, the more admiration I have for our extraordinary staff led by Mark Levin and Lesley Weiss. Their commitment is truly 24/7. They respond to emergencies and events with speed and thoroughness, whether they affect individuals or entire communities.

 

We all look forward to working with you in the coming year to continue to help assure that our fellow Jews can live with freedom, security, and dignity in their homelands. 

 

DEAR FRIENDS,

 

The past year has been a busy one for NCSEJ, and the coming year promises to be just as filled with challenges.
