Robinn Magid appointed Assistant Director of JRI-Poland #announcements

Stanley Diamond

Dear friends


It is with great pleasure that I announce that the board of JRI-Poland has

unanimously elected Robinn Magid to assume the new position of

Assistant Director and member of the JRI-Poland executive committee.   


Robinn has been a mainstay of JRI-Poland from the earliest days of our

organization, taking on countless roles along the way. Becoming Assistant

Director is a natural evolution of her growing responsibilities over the years. 


Robinn is thoroughly familiar with the history, policies, and traditions of JRI-Poland and the core mission to provide the research community with access to all the records of importance to those tracing their Jewish roots in Poland.  She has traveled to Poland on many occasions and has worked closely with our team on the ground there as well as the professionals carrying out records-extraction of the 1868-1915 Russian language records.


Robinn’s respected leadership in the Jewish genealogical world is

exemplified by her roles as chair of the 2018 International Conference on

Jewish Genealogy in Warsaw and the chair once again for the 2020 virtual

conference originally scheduled for San Diego.


In her new role, Robinn will be assuming and sharing responsibility for a

wide variety of roles within the wide scope of JRI-Poland activities, both

current and on the drawing board.


I am personally delighted by the opportunity to work closely with Robinn in

this new phase of the JRI-Poland journey.
