Mark Levin Executive Director

The National Conference on Soviet Jewry seeks to protect the rights of Jews living in the former Soviet Union. Founded in 1971, NCSJ played a leading role in the movement to improve the plight of Soviet Jewry during the last two decades of the Cold War. Today, the organization continues to serve as a coordinating agency for 50 national organizations and over 300 local federations committed to helping the 1.5 million Jews living in the former Soviet Union. NCSJ combats anti-Semitism and advocates for unfettered Jewish emigration from the former Soviet Union, and supports Jewish religious and communal life.
