With so much global attention on Russia, don’t miss this opportunity to hear from
Asher Ostrin, world expert on post-Soviet Jewish life.

Melbourne: 22 – 26 October, 2018

Sydney: 28 – 31 October, 2018
Asher Ostrin
In a career spanning more than 32 years, Asher has overseen the care and wellbeing of millions of Jews struggling to survive in a postSoviet age. He helped mastermind the resurgence of Jewish life that is thriving today in the region. Under his 20-year leadership of the former Soviet Union division, The Joint established its massive network
of Jewish welfare centres and community centres that today sustain Jewish lives and Jewish life across eleven time-zones.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn how a new generation of post-Soviet Jewry is evolving in one of the most complex, fast-changing and critical parts of the world.

We look forward to hosting you in what promises to be a very special evening
