Quote: “It is an honor to be entrusted with the position of ZOA-Pittsburgh
president to help lead the efforts to enlighten our community. I plan to focus
on clearing up/correcting unsubstantiated and unconscionable anti-Jewish
positions and attacks, such as misplaced support for boycotts, divestment and
sanctions, mistaken assumptions by Hamas apologists, misguided acts of
anti-Semitism (and) misunderstood dangers to Western Democracy caused
by the evils of anti-U.S./anti-Israel terrorism.”
