Dr. William Recant, Assistant Executive Vice President of International Development Programs, JDC
Will Recant is the assistant executive vice president of JDC's International Development Program. Among his responsibilities is the development and coordination of projects relating to the rescue, relief and renewal of Jewish communities worldwide.
Before joining JDC, Will served as executive director of the American Association for Ethiopian Jews, where he established the Congressional Caucus for Ethiopian Jews and advocated on behalf of the Ethiopian Jewry movement. The end result of his efforts was Operation Solomon, one of the largest resettlement operations of the 20th century.
Once the airlift of Ethiopian Jews to Israel was complete, AAEJ closed its doors, and Will was the natural choice to represent JDC in Washington, D.C. During his tenure there, Cuba's government began the process of revising its constitution, paving the way for JDC to secure a license to initiate community development and renewal within the country's Jewish communities.

Will holds both a master's and PhD in political science from George Washington University focused on Soviet Jewish emigrants.

"There's a direct correlation between the media exposure the Syrian conflict is getting and the ability to raise funds," said Will Recant, JDC's assistant executive vice president. He said the money already raised - half a million dollars before, and another $120,000 for expanding the program - can make a difference: "It's significant, because it helped thousands of Syrians see Israelis and Jews helping them at their time of need."
