GET TO KNOW SHALOM LAMM
Shalom Lamm, son of past chancellor of Yeshiva University Norman Lamm, is an American real estate developer. He is the CEO of the non-profit organization Operation Benjamin, a business dedicated to preserving the memories of American-Jewish servicemen and women who fought during World War II.
ABOUT OPERATION BENJAMIN
Operation Benjamin was first inspired by Private Benjamin Garadetsky, a Jewish soldier who was mistakenly buried under a Latin Cross at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial.
The mission of Operation Benjamin is to locate Jewish personnel at American cemeteries all over the world and correct the representation of their heritage and religion at their grave. The organization believes it to be an honor to set the record straight.
In addition to being the CEO of his non-profit organization, Shalom Lamm is passionate about helping those in need. During the 1990's, Jewish communities in the Ukraine were in great danger. To offer his aid, Lamm sent food as well as supplies to help the people survive.
