Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the
Joint Distribution Committee

“Let My People Go- But What of Those Who Stayed Behind?”

Join us for dinner and to learn the hidden stories of Global Jewish Life you never heard.

Asher Ostrin, JDC’s Senior Executive for International Affairs, will share stories of his
life’s work to care for Jews around the world left behind. When Jews, five generations removed from Jewish life in the FSU wanted to reclaim their heritage, Asher was the man in charge. Who are those Jews? Why did they return? What lessons can they teach us?

JDC is a longtime global partner of the Minneapolis Jewish Federation.
