On the recommendation of the Hon. Solicitors of the Foundation for Jewish Heritage, the Steering Committee has appointed the successful Minsk law firm Legaltax to represent it within Belarus. Legaltax will also specifically assist with facilitating the ongoing dialogue with the city of Slonim and other authorities on the Great Synagogue project.
Eugenia Urodnich, partner of the firm, will lead the legal project team.
This appointment represents another important step forward for the Steering Committee as it seeks to develop its plans – and its profile – within the country.
