Passing of Misha Avramoff

We are deeply saddened to hear of Misha Avramoff’s passing. Misha was one of the founders of Project Ezra. He was one of the strongest proponents of the cooperation between Project Ezra and ARSP that started in 1984. He was also a founding father of the American Friends of ARSP and a board member. Misha was influential in building trust with the Jewish community and strongly supported our ARSP volunteers for almost 40 years. We still share Misha’s strong belief in Jewish-German reconciliation, and are very grateful for his efforts. We wish to express our condolences to his family and are truly sorry for their loss!
