WASHINGTON, DC, August 29, 2017 - NCSEJ welcomes Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's decision to fill the position of Special Envoy to Combat and Monitor Anti-Semitism at the Department of State.
In March, NCSEJ Executive Vice-Chairman and CEO Mark Levin wrote an op-ed with Daniel Mariaschin, Executive Vice President of B'nai B'rith International, on the importance of keeping this crucial position in place. In June, NCSEJ along with five other national Jewish organizations sent a letter to Secretary Tillerson urging him to retain the Anti-Semitism Envoy. NCSEJ has also worked with members of Congress to garner support for the office.
NCSEJ Chairman Daniel Rubin also welcomes news that Secretary Tillerson intends to retain the special envoy for Holocaust issues and the ambassador-at-large for religious freedom, among other offices at the State Department. These are positions critical to furthering NCSEJ's mission of protecting and supporting the growth of Jewish life in Eurasia.
NCSEJ looks forward to working with the special envoys and ambassador-at-large.
