With great fanfare and festivity, KKL-JNF opened its 45th office worldwide, this time in the Podgorica, Montenegro, on November 8, 2013.

Six hundred guests from 11 Baltic States came in honor of the grand opening, including Oscar-winning film producer Branko Lustig, who produced Schindler's List and Winds of War.

The four keynote speakers at the event were Mr. Menachem Leibovic, KKL-JNF Vice Chairman; Mr. Avi Dickstein, KKL-JNF Executive Director of Resources, Development and Public Affairs; HE Mr. Yosef Levy, Israel Ambassador to the Republic of Serbia and Montenegro, and Dr. Miomir Mugosha, the Mayor of Podgorica.

The President of brand-new KKL-JNF of the Balkans is Montenegro Jewish community leader Jaša Alfandari.

The establishment of the KKL-JNF headquarters of the Balkans was the result of the collaborative effort between KKL-JNF, the Jewish community of Montenegro, and the Government of Montenegro.
