Viatcheslav Moshe Kantor is a public figure who was born in Russia. He currently holds a number of global leadership positions. As a result of taking part in diverse business enterprises, Kantor has become one of the richest people in modern-day Russia. Fighting against neo-Nazism, anti-Semitism as well as racism is brought him worldwide fame. He is much involved in programs aimed at ensuring that the Jews around the world live a better life. Below is a list of the best of his successes.
Promotion of Peace and Understanding
Moshe Kantor has and still does participate in programs intended to bring people in the European countries together. He is the pioneer of the European Council on tolerance and reconciliation (ECTR). Former presidents, as well as winners of the Nobel Prize, are normally encouraged to join this organization and help in the promotion of tolerance and reconciliation. For encouraging tolerance and peace in Europe and the rest of the world, the organization is involved in combatting extremism and racial discrimination.
Appointment as Leader of the Jewish Council
The reason why The European Jewish Council was formed was so that the rights and privileges of the Jews around Europe can be defended. The objectives of the council are achieved by setting up commemoration for events that happened in the past in which the Jews were involved such as the Holocaust. The commemoration of such tragic events serves the purpose of reminding people so that they would not forget and repeat the mistakes of the past. Kantor’s work through this council is to ensure that the Jewish culture and way of life is preserved and passed on for posterity. He has served as the president of the council since 2007.
Takes Part in the Nuclear Demobilization Efforts
Kantor pioneered and still leads the International Luxembourg Forum on Preventing Nuclear Catastrophe. This forum was formed with the sole purpose of atomic weapons demilitarization by countries around the world. The forum takes and organizes discussions on nuclear security, and drafts recommendations towards encouraging countries that are currently involved in nuclear arms race to consider disarmament as a viable option for global peace. And because the nuclear war threat is real, the forum works with world governments in taking this threat seriously, as well as providing a links to reliable sources of information regarding this danger.
Takes Part in Art and History Preservation
Kantor also founded the Museum Of Avant-Garde Mastery in 2001 in Moscow. The art museum, which is principally concerned with safeguarding and promoting art, currently holds some of the world famous artefacts of the 20th century Russian avant-garde. As a result, the museum has preserved the former Soviet Union’s history for the period ranging between 1890 and 1930.
