Will Recant is the Assistant Executive Vice President of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee-International Development Program. Among his responsibilities is the development and coordination of projects relating to the rescue, relief, and renewal of Jewish communities worldwide.

Recant has been vital in uniting and unifying communities. Over the years he has served as the Executive Director of the American Association for Ethiopian Jews. The end result of his efforts was Operation Solomon, one of the largest resettlements of the 20th century. Recant has also been involved in initiating community development and renewal within Cuba’s Jewish communities and forming twinning programs between North American Jewish Federations and communities in the Baltics, where the Jewish communities have long suffered from economic deprivation.
