Standing Ovation at David Harris Lecture


David Harris, the executive director of AJC, spoke to about 300 people at Temple Beth El, Stamford in March. His topic was: "Hope vs Fear: The changing global landscape". The event was co-sponsored by AJC Westchester and Temple Beth El.


Rabbi Hammerman said ““David Harris is regarded as one of the leading advocates and most eloquent spokesmen for the Jewish people and for Israel’s political and diplomatic standing and his speech was insightful and thought provoking.”
