I had the privilege of meeting Sid (z”l) a handful of times while he and Helaine met with AJC CEO David Harris. Sid always lit up the room, and of course, I knew his passion for furthering Muslim-Jewish relations. I also participated in the life-changing Muslim World League-American Jewish Committee trip to Auschwitz and Warsaw, which simply would not have been possible without the vision and generosity of Sid Lerner. Sid’s involvement with AJC changed the trajectory of Muslim-relations. I’m grateful to have met him and will continue to remember him every time I think of the historic trip to Auschwitz.
