UJA-Federation of New York: Strengthening a Global Jewish Identity

By John S. Ruskay, Manfred Gerstenfeld

Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), February 15, 2006

In this interview John Ruskay, the executive vice-president and CEO of UJA-Federation of New York, says that the Federation's major reorganization, which ended the division between domestic and overseas issues, reflects a changing worldview that stresses commonalities over differences. Ruskay addresses the allocation of UJA-Federation funds, the relevance of Synagogues to his organization, Jewish poverty, Ethiopian Jews and the minor growth in Jewish philanthropy, among other topics. He ends the interview by discussing the challenge of dealing with the next generation and engaging young Jews in their twenties and thirties.
