JDC's century of service to the global Jewish people was celebrated at Limmud Moscow, an annual educational conference dating back to 2007 that is one of the many Jewish activities JDC supports in Russia.
Limmud, which lasts three days and attracts about a thousand participants each year, organized the "JDC: 100 Years" exhibit to showcase the organization's extraordinary history and accomplishments. The event included more than 50 photos and historical documents.
“We are very excited we could organize a JDC exhibit at Limmud. Hundreds of people got an opportunity to have a closer look at our astonishing and unique history,” said Alik Nadan, director of JDC Russia. "The Joint has always been with the Jewish communities, saving people, supporting and developing Jewish life.”
Besides the special photo exhibit, JDC researcher and historian Dr. Michael Beizer, of Jerusalem, gave two lectures, where he touched upon JDC's first years in the USSR and told the crowd details of his personal investigation of the mysterious murder of two JDC officers in 1920 in Ukraine.
Varlen Strongin, a writer, poet and now Hesed Chamah client, also spoke about the Soviet Jewish intelligentsia and a famous Soviet telepathist and alleged psychic named Wolf Grigorevich Messing.
