Singer in new Argentine project

Israel Singer is pursuing an independent project in Buenos Aires. Singer, who was fired last month from the World Jewish Congress over allegations of financial impropriety, told JTA that he was involved in developing a new project in Argentina but would not offer further details. Singer said the project involves several local groups and is “going very
well,” but added that he wasn’t ready to discuss it yet with the media.
He recently spent a week in Buenos Aires working on the project.Singer retains his position as president of the Claims Conference and his involvement with the International Jewish Committee for Interreligious Consultations.He said his life “hasn’t changed” since his dismissal from the WJC, where he spent nearly three decades in top positions. “I believe that organizations are vehicles, not purposes. They exist to serve issues.”
