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.”
