We appreciate your leadership and generosity! Join us as we launch UJA’s 2023 Long Island Campaign and recognize the impact you’re making and the legacy you’re creating.
Guest speaker Jonathan Ornstein, chief executive officer of the JCC of Krakow, will discuss how the JCC is helping Ukrainian Jews on their journey to a new life in Israel. We’ll also hear from Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations, Gilad Erdan, in an exclusive virtual address.
We welcome families who give $25,000 or more to the 2023 Annual Campaign and all young adults who are part of our Long Island leadership families.
Jonathan has served as the chief executive officer of the Jewish Community Centre of Krakow, Poland, an organization devoted to rebuilding Jewish life in Krakow, since the JCC was officially opened in April 2008 by The Prince of Wales. A native of New York City, Jonathan moved to Israel in 1994 and served in a combat unit in the I.D.F. before moving to Poland in 2001.
Ambassador Gilad Erdan currently serves as Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations. From 2015 to 2020, he served as Israel’s minister of Strategic Affairs, where he coordinated the government’s strategy against the Palestinian-led efforts to delegitimize and boycott the State of Israel on the world stage.
