10th Annual Ezra Veterans Project

EZRA USA with the partnership of COJECO and American Forum for Russian Jewry launches its Tenth Annual Veterans Appreciation Project to Honor Russian-Jewish Veterans of World War II. On May 6 , 2018, in commemoration of those who bravely fought during World War II, the Jewish organization EZRA USA will honor Russian-Jewish veterans for the sacrifices and contributions they made in fighting against the Nazi regime. In connection with the organization's Veterans Appreciation Project, members of Ezra USA and COJECO will visit Russian-Jewish veterans living in Brooklyn and Queens to personally thank them for their noble service during WWII. Each veteran will receive honorary gifts prepared by members of the organization.With less and less Russian-speaking Jewish veterans of World War II remaining, it is essential that we honor them now and keep the memory of their experiences alive. The Veterans Appreciation Project is an opportunity to do both, as it will honor veterans for the bravery they exhibited throughout the war and also expose program participants to their stories, enabling them to live on. Bringing together two separate generations of Russian-Jews will also serve to reinforce Russian-Jewish unity. The Veterans Appreciation Project is representative of Ezra USA's focus on the Russian Jewish community in the United States. A Russian-speaking Jewish youth movement in the United States, Ezra USA is dedicated to strengthening the Jewish identity of young Russian Jews in America. The organization serves about 7,000 young Russian Jews. Ezra USA emphasizes the teaching of Jewish values, leadership development in the Jewish Russian community and, above all, the continuation of the Jewish people. If you are interested in more information about the project please contact [email redacted]. This project can't be realized without your support. 100% of the funds raised will go towards purchasing gifts for the veterans.
