AJR appoints new Head of Media and Public Relations

The Association of Jewish Refugees is delighted to announce the appointment of Michael Newman as our new Head of Media and Public Relations. He will co-ordinate our efforts to identify potential new members and produce information to advise them of the extensive welfare, social and financial services from which they can benefit.

He will also be responsible for our Outreach Programme, which has already developed more than 30 regional groups across the country, and for ensuring the AJR is well represented at national and international events.

Known to many of our members, he will also continue in his role as Director of the Central Office for Holocaust Claims, assisting Holocaust survivors and their heirs with restitution and compensation enquiries.

After several years heading the AJR's Media, Development and Community Relations Departments, Ronald Channing has been appointed - to work part-time - as the AJR's Special Representative for Educational and Cultural Projects. He will continue to give organisational support to the Kindertransport (KT) special interest group of the AJR and to write feature articles and reports for the AJR Journal.

AJR Chairman Andrew Kaufman said: 'We are delighted to have made these appointments and look forward to continue to provide an invaluable service to our membership. We also hope to offer our expert assistance to new members.'
