An Interesting Scoop

On July 3 an American freelance journalist from New York City visited KJJC.
Ilia Shats, the Director of KJJC, was very pleased with Chuck Todaro's visit to the Campus and told him about our organizations and programs.
Mr. Todaro is very interested in Jewish life, and when visiting a new country he always tries to find information about the local Jewish community. After his trip around KJJC he asked some questions about Jewish life in Moldova, how it is developing after the Second World War, and how the situation is now.
Mr. Todaro was extremely impressed in the Campus and said, “It is a really wonderful and big resource. Judaism is a very interesting topic for me and it was great to come here, met the good people and learn about your programs and about Jewish life in Moldova”
