“The Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) strongly welcomes reports that President Biden has selected Dr. Deborah Lipstadt to serve as Special Envoy with the rank of Ambassador-at-Large to Monitor & Combat Antisemitism. With antisemitism on the rise in the U.S. and around the world, Dr. Lipstadt is absolutely the right person at the right time for this critical role.

“Dr. Lipstadt is one of the leading global authorities on antisemitism given her meticulous scholarship, deep personal commitment to the truth, and profound understanding of the dangers of extremism. At this perilous moment for the security of Jews worldwide, the appointment of Dr. Lipstadt sends a strong message that antisemitism will not be tolerated by the Biden White House.”
