May 3, 2021

At a reception held at the residence of the Polish Ambassador to Israel to mark the Poland’s “Constitution Day”, our World Society Vice-President and Chairman of the Association of Częstochowa Jews in Israel, Alon Goldman, was presented with the “Gold Cross of Merit” by the Ambassador of Poland, Marek Magierowski, on behalf of the President of the Republic of Poland, Andrzej Duda.

This award is presented in recognition of “exemplary public service or humanitarian work that goes above and beyond the call of duty”. In Alon Goldman’s case, it was awarded in recognition of his volunteer activities towards the building of bridges between Poland and Israel.

In a speech, immediately prior to the presentation of the award, Ambassador Magierowski referred to Alon Goldman as “a partner with whom we have already fulfilled countless initiatives and a friend you can always count on. His command of Częstochow’s history is unparalled”.

Referring to Alon Goldman’s achievements, he added that “he was so glad that so many young Jews and young Poles have deepened their knowledge about this beautiful city, which is so historically important to Polish Catholics and to the Jewish community”.
