On Monday, March 19, a festive dinner was held in Jerusalem, organized by the president of the Euro-Asian Jewish Congress (EAJC), Mikhail Mirilashvili, as part of the visit of the delegation of the World Jewish Congress led by Ronald Lauder to Israel.
Mikhail Mirilashvili appealed to the audience and outlined the prospects of the EAJC activity: “We can definitely say that after long years of stagnation, the Euro-Asian Jewish Congress has come to life and actively develops and growths. At the end of 2017, a record annual budget was approved. Since early 2018, the Congress has supported or initiated more than 30 projects. Recently, we have been repeatedly asked to join the Congress from communities from all over the world: Thailand, Vietnam, China, Laos, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, South Korea, Turkey and others. We started supporting such large-scale projects as Taglit and Limmud. We are acquiring new partners – the Israel-Russia Business Council, the Friendship Fund, the All-Russian Union of Jewish Students, the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia and others. ”
The event was also attended by the Minister Zeev Elkin, EAJC Chairman and WJC Vice President Aaron Frenkel, EAJC First Vice President Teimuraz Khikhinashvili (Ben Yehuda), WJC Director Robert Zinger, EAJC Vice President Alexander Levin, EAJC Vice President Alexander Bilinkis, EAJC Vice President Maxim Pasik, EAJC first Vice President Rami Levi, heads of communities and other members of the WJC delegation.
