The ''' Russian Exarchate of North America''' was the distinct name of the group of [[ parish]] es of the Russian mission in America which recognized the canonical authority of the [[ Church of Russia]] during the period of the declaration of [[ schism]] by the Patriarchate over the [[ Orthodox Church in America| Russian Metropolia]]. It existed from 1933, when Metropolitan [[Platon ( Rozhdestvensky) of New York]] was dismissed by the Patriarchate, to 1970 , when the interdiction was lifted by Moscow and [[ autocephaly]] granted to the Metropolia. At that time the Exarchate was officially dissolved.
The parishes of the Exarchate which remained under the canonical protection of the Patriarchate after the grant of autocephaly came under an [[ auxiliary bishop]] came to be known as the [[ Russian Orthodox Church in the USA]].
During its existence the Exarchate participated in [[SCOBA]], especially in the person of Metr. [[ John (Wendland) of New York and the Aleutians]].
