The impact of Sid Lerner’s vision, dedication, and generosity on the world, and specifically on the security and well-being of the Jewish people, was profound — and will endure. So much of the work the American Jewish Committee has been able to undertake to advance Muslim-Jewish and Arab-Israeli understanding and cooperation has been made possible only because of Sid and Helaine Lerner’s commitment; this work has been groundbreaking, and generations across the Middle East, around the world, and in our country will remain always in their debt. Words are insufficient…but thank you, Sid, for your powerful and lasting contributions to a better world for our people and for all.

Jason Isaacson, AJC Chief Policy and Political Affairs Officer
