Michigan’s former senior United States Senator, Donald W. Riegle, Jr., retired after three terms in the Senate and ten years of service in the U.S. House of Representatives. Throughout his federal legislative career, Don Riegle served as a champion of Soviet Jewry. He co-sponsored most of the major legislation pertaining to freedom of immigration issues and personally intervened with the leadership of the former Soviet Union on behalf of Jewish Refuseniks. As Anti-Semitism increased in the former Soviet Union, once again Don Riegle spoke out.
The Riegle Award Event proceeds have assisted Jewish Community Services in the successful resettlement of over 415 individuals from the former Soviet Union and several Russian-speaking Muslim families from Uzbekistan. JCS provides services to recipients without regard to race, religion, place of national origin or ethnicity. Our efforts have been assisted through the kindness of many community organizations, as well as scores of volunteers coming together to assist in creating new lives for refugees fleeing religious persecution.
