I’m here in Minsk, Belarus, getting ready to help in the staffing of the Campaign Chairs and Directors Mission (CCD) of the Jewish Federations of North America.

Minsk is beautiful. It’s clean, wide, and friendly, safe at night and the food is great.
Most of all, I've been impressed by the professionalism and passion of my colleagues who are working here.

We spent the day yesterday in prep briefings, preliminary socioeconomic tours (supermarkets, etc) and site visits. The aim will be to inspire, guide and lift the annual campaign of our federations in the year ahead. Looking at the quality of itinerary, the programs and – most importantly – the people here – I think it’s going to be great.
