Ruth Messinger
Global Ambassador American Jewish World Service Ruth W. Messinger is currently the Global Ambassador for American Jewish World Service (AJWS). In this role, Ruth is continuing her crucial work of engaging rabbis and interfaith leaders to speak out on behalf of oppressed and persecuted communities worldwide. She formerly was President of AJWS from 1998 to July of 2016. Ruth's remarkable 18-year presidency at AJWS began after a 20-year career in public service in New York City as a city council member and Manhattan Borough President. Under Ruth's leadership, AJWS grew exponentially-granting more than $270 million to promote human rights in the developing world and launching campaigns to end the Darfur genocide, reform international food aid, stop violence against women and LGBT people, end land grabs and respond to natural disasters around the globe. She came to AJWS in 1998, after a 20-year career in public service in New York City. As an activist for human rights around the globe, Ruth currently sits on the State Department's Religion and Foreign Policy Working Group and co-chairs the Sub-Working Group on Social Justice. Many national Jewish organizations have honored Ruth, and The Jewish Daily Forward, The Jerusalem Post and Huffington Post have named her on lists of the world's most influential Jews and religious leaders.
