                  Letter from Director of Chernivtsi Jewish Museum to Mikhail Mirilashvili
                  21.02.2018, Congress

                  Our project was approved by the EAJC Program Commission. However, we have yet to receive news about its future. As no formal decision has been reached on whether our project will be financed or not, we cannot plan its implementation in the upcoming year, even though 2018 has long begun.

                  The EAJC Program Commission was created according to the decision of the Extraordinary General Assembly of the Euro-Asian Jewish Congress, and over the second half of 2017, it has reviewed a number of projects submitted on behalf of EAJC member organizations. The Program Commission approved a number of projects to finance in 2018, and they were forwarded to the Directorate General in Israel in a timely manner. Unfortunately, none of the project applications have received an official answer, neither from the Directorate nor from the Congress President. Unofficially, Acting EAJC Director General Haim ben Yaakov has said that the Congress President has decided not to finance any of the projects. Thus, many projects that had been traditionally supported by the EAJC are now on the brink of dissolution.

                  We are publishing the letter of Hadashot newspaper editor-in-chief Michael Gold to EAJC President Mikhail Mirilashvili.
