Guests from Far Away

Renee Friedman, JDC Associate in Sydney, Australia, who works to develop a JDC presence within the Australian Jewish community, and Naomi Levin, journalist and Deputy editor of the Australian Jewish News, based in Melbourne, visited the Jewish community of Moldova for the first time. Moldova became one of the parts of their program that also included Hungary and Saint-Petersburg in Russia


In our country they were in Kishinev and Beltsy and paid a lot of attention to the KJJC programs.


 “The story of Moldova’s Jewish community is not only very important but very inspiring. Thank you for sharing your wonderful passions with me”, wrote Naomi in the KJJC Guest Book.


 Meetings with JDC welfare programs clients who receive assistance through Hesed and Jewish Family Service, cultural and educational programs developed by JCC and Center of Training, young leaders of Hillel and Haverim youth clubs helped to build a picture of the present local community and possibly the aspirations and plans for the nearest future.


 “Thank you for your warmth and hospitality. Your professionalism and dedication is inspiring. JDC and your work with JDC symbolizes for me what it is to be Jewish”, said Renee in the end of the visit.
