In a defensive strike against a rival group of Jewish leaders and businessmen who are trying to sideline him from Ukrainian Jewish politics, Ukrainian-Israeli businessman Vadim Rabinovich summoned more than 1,600 Jews from across Ukraine to Kyiv on April 5-6 to show their support for his leadership.

Rabinovich, who created the All-Ukrainian Jewish Congress in 1997 and had led it ever since, dissolved that organization just before the congress to create a new one named the United Jewish Community of Ukraine, which promptly elected him its leader.

The meeting came just a week in advance of the scheduled founding congress of the rival group, the Jewish Confederation of Ukraine, which insiders said might elect Ukraine's other leading Jewish financial mogul, Hryhory Surkis, as its leader.
