Obama Aide Replaces Foxman as Anti-Defamation League Head

ADL Annual Meeting Of The National Commission - Morning Session

To the chagrin and even outrage of some Jewish Republicans (at least expressed on Facebook) who seemed to drop their glasses after saying l’chaims over the victory of the Republicans in the Senate this past week, Obama Aide, Jonathan Greenblatt has been named as the new chief of the Anti-Defamation League.

Abraham Foxman, who led the organization since 1987, announced he was stepping down last February, and the change of the guard should take effect in 2015, as reported by Haaretz.

Greenblatt is the grandson of Holocaust survivors, and was the unanimous choice of a 16 member committee. At the White House, Greenblatt  is the director of Social Innovation and Civic Participation in the Domestic Policy Council. His work is in connection with national service, impact investing, civic engagement and social enterprise. While at Tufts, Greenblatt interned for the ADL and was involved in the ADL professional leadership program. He is also an entrepreneur and founder of Ethos water, which uses much of its proceeds to fund global water development programs.
