Abraham Foxman, 1940-

Foxman was the national director of the Anti-Defamation League from 1987 to 2015. He and ADL spoke out against rising anti-Israel sentiment as an expression of increasing antisemitism beginning in the late 1990s. A Holocaust survivor, he wrote a book about re-emerging antisemitism in 2003, “Never Again?” Under his leadership, ADL promoted training exchanges between U.S. and Israeli law enforcement.
