BRONFMAN--Edgar. The Officers, Board, and staff of World ORT mourn the tremendous loss of Edgar Bronfman. The dear friend and dedicated leader of the Jewish people, Edgar, has provided invaluable wisdom, and boundless dedication to some of the world's largest Jewish organizations, impacting the lives of Jews around the world. As the longtime president of the World Jewish Congress, Edgar fought for Jewish rights worldwide. For the past 30 years he also devoted his efforts to teens and college students connecting them to their Jewish heritage and to Israel. World ORT extends our deepest condolences to his wife, children, brother, sister and grandchildren. May his memory be for a blessing. Dr. Jean de Gunzburg, World ORT President Mauricio Merikanskas, Chairman of the Board of Trustees Conrad Giles, Deputy President Shmuel Sisso, Director General and CEO World ORT
