Home > Operation Promise > Edgar Snyder to Lead Local Effort Edgar Snyder to Lead Local EffortEdgar Snyder talks with one of the recipients of services at the Etel Soup Kitchen in Moscow during Snyder's most recent visit to the Former Soviet Union late last year.Edgar Snyder, who co-chaired the Israel Emergency Appeal with the late Karen Shapira, has been named chair of Operation Promise.Snyder is also chair of the UJF's Israel and World Jewry Commission and serves as a member of the Israel and Overseas Pillar of United Jewish Communities.UJC, the United Jewish Federation's national organization, is coordinating Operation Promise.Snyder is currently on a fact-finding North American mission to Ethiopia."In deciding whether to take this chairmanship, I knew that if Karen (Shapira) were here today and knowing the great work she had started on behalf of the Ethiopian community, she would have asked me to do this," said Snyder."Karen knew the importance of helping the Ethiopians achieve their dream of going to Israel and ensuring they have a very successful absorption into Israeli society." Shapira, a past chair of the UJF and a national Jewish community leader, went on a fact-finding mission to Ethiopia in 2003 on behalf of United Jewish Communities to assess the situation in Ethiopia.She later briefed high-level Israeli government officials, including Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, on the dire needs of Ethiopian Jews waiting to immigrate to Israel."I want to do this for Karen and continue the work she started," said Snyder."Unless we are able to provide critical initiatives to improve educational opportunities for all Ethiopians, they are in danger of becoming part of a permanent underclass," Snyder said. The remaining two parts of Operation Promise earmark $30 million in aid to improvished elderly in the former Soviet Union (FSU) and $30 million to be used to build Jewish identity among young Jews in the FSU."The amazing work we have accomplished in the FSU in the first 15 years of Jewish freedom demonstrates what is possible," Snyder said."I have visited many of the countries of the FSU frequently in recent years and I have seen with my own eyes the plight of the people there.The needs are absolutely tremendous.People do not have enough to eat and are unable to receive proper medical care," Snyder added.
