A political campaign that emboldened hate and bigotry on many fronts came at a particularly bad time, because anti-Semitism was already surging on both the right and the left, both in the United States and abroad. Kenneth Jacobson will discuss these trends as well as the new Administration’s approach to Israel and Middle East issues.
Kenneth Jacobson joined the Anti-Defamation League staff in 1972 and currently serves as its Deputy National Director, responsible for overseeing and coordinating the formulation of ADL’s policy and its implementation. Mr. Jacobson is the author of numerous publications, including The Protocols: Myth and History, The Middle East: Questions and Answers, The Middle East ‘Post’ Lebanon, and US Aid to the Middle East: A Look Back, A Look Ahead. By popular demand, Ken returns each April for an informative and engaging presentation.
