Donald Trump received an overwhelming support in the Russian speaking community of America during the last year Presidential election. "The Times of Israel", a center-left newspaper, decided to to learn why Russian American Jews love Trump so much and how do they view his first Presidential decisions. The author of this story, Cathryn J. Prince, interviewed Ari Kagan and several other prominent community members - both critics and supporters of Trump.
I recently returned from the amazing trip to Israel. I visited many interesting places and cities, including Jerusalem and Haifa, Tel Aviv and Herzlia, forests and rivers, lakes and gardens, kibbutz and moshav. Special thanks to Jewish National Fund - Keren Kayemeth Le Israel (JNF-KKL), American Forum of Russian speaking Jewry, my friends and relatives for making this trip unforgettable and very memorable.
I was humbled and honored this year to be elected to the volunteer position of the delegate to the 37th World Zionist Congress. It is an important international Jewish forum that has influence over Jewish Agency for Israel, Jewish National Fund and even over some policies of Israeli government as well as over world Jewish Diaspora.
A few dozens state, federal and city elected officials and community leaders spoke at the recent pro-Israel rally at the steps of New York City Hall.
