I recently had the opportunity to travel to China with the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee young professionals group Entwine. JDC, or the “Joint,” is the world’s leading Jewish humanitarian assistance organization. Detroit’s own Penny Blumenstein is the current president. Entwine encompasses young Jewish leaders, influencers and advocates who seek to make a meaningful impact on global Jewish needs and international humanitarian issues.
While JDC may be known best for caring for the aging population in the former Soviet Union or coordinating Operation Moses, the largest covert evacuation of Ethiopian Jews to Israel, it impacts millions of lives in more than 70 countries.
