Last issue’s JTNews carried three letters of appreciation for the pivotal leadership of Rob Jacobs, our former ADL regional director, in broadening the Jewish community’s dialogue with each other — especially the dialogue about how we each support Israel, even where we differ on specific approaches. We fully supported this work.
Our Pacific Northwest Anti-Defamation League staff and volunteer leaders remain committed to fostering communication and dialogue within our diverse Jewish community. It has been good, and will continue to be good, for us to know each other better so that, in the face of anti-Semitism, intolerance and hate, our solidarity and resolve will make more effective our mutual pursuit of enduring peace, security and justice. We look forward to joining with you in this continuing effort.
