Representatives of the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey immediately contacted Evan's parents, expressing their support and offering the necessary assistance.

Мanagement Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) prepared a collective petition to US Secretary of State Anthony Blinkin.

The petition reads, in part: “We appreciate all that has already been done, and we appeal to you to continue to do everything in your power to ensure that Evan returns home. Evan's family are members of our American Jewish community. As you know, his parents emigrated from the Soviet Union, fleeing anti-Semitism and striving to live in a free society. The story of Evan, who comes from a family of Jewish immigrants, is familiar to every American Jew, and this is what prompted our community to begin a campaign for his safe return home.”
