At the recently held 16th plenary assembly of the WJC, the leadership of the Congress has been re-elected for another four-year term. This has been shared on Facebook by the President of the Jewish Confederation of Ukraine and Vice President of the World Jewish Congress Boris Lozhkin.
“The World Jewish Congress, uniting 103 Jewish communities around the world, including the Jewish Confederation of Ukraine, played an important role in consolidating international support for the defending Israelis during the recent conflict between Hamas and the sovereign state of Israel,” Lozhkin wrote.
He also informed that the issues to minimize terrorist threats in the future, the growth of global anti-Semitism had been discussed at the assembly, with a particular focus on the importance of preserving the memory of the Holocaust.
These and many other issues will be touched upon at the autumn, already the third, Kyiv Jewish Forum, to which the JCU president has invited all the participants of the Congress.
“Congratulations to the WJC President Ronald Lauder, Chairman of the WJC Governing Board David de Rothschild, Treasurer Chella Safra, and all board members of the Congress who have been elected to another four-year term. I am honored to be Vice President of the World Jewish Congress. This is undoubtedly the best assessment of the activities of the Jewish Confederation of Ukraine and its role in the life of the world Jewish community,” Lozhkin wrote.
