God Nisanov presents the award to Ronald Lauder at Russian Jewish Congress reception

17 September 2019

More than 500 guests gathered on September 16 for the annual reception of the Russian Jewish Congress in honor Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. The 2019 reception was dedicated to World Jewish Congress President Ronald Lauder, who also celebrated his 75th birthday. The funds raised at the reception went to Russian Jewish Congress charity projects.

The 2019 reception marked the first time that the Russian Jewish Congress established and issued a special token of gratitude, the Global Influence Award, to people whose activities changed the world. The first-ever award was given to both Ronald Lauder and Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion, who visited Russia for the first time since he was elected.

The award was presented by God Nisanov, who is the chairman of the board of directors of the Kievskaya Ploshchad Group of Companies as well as the vice president of the World Jewish Congress and a member of the Bureau of the Presidium of the Russian Jewish Congress. Nisanov thanked Mr. Lauder for his enormous contribution to the development of the Jewish community in Russia and noted that the WJC president's outstanding work has made a global impact and changed the world for the better.

Nisanov added: “Ronald Lauder is a man who wanted to change the world and did so. For many years, he has been a leader in world business as well as a renowned philanthropist and a good friend who supports many Jewish schools and kindergartens in Russia. This fundraiser is being held on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, which I hope will be the start of a new year that will bring joy and prosperity to everyone as well as much success in our work together.”
