ADL, Bnai Brith pay tribute to Peres

The Anti Defamation League calls Peres “the diplomatic, political and social innovation face of Israel over a seven-decade career.”

“His moderation and insight not only drew world leaders and dignitaries to meet and consult with him, but also served Israel in its ongoing fight against delegitimization and other anti-Israel forces,” Marvin Nathan, ADL National Chair, and Jonathan Greenblatt, ADL CEO say in a statement.

They marvel that Peres had recently taken up skydiving alongside his work to “promote social innovation and new advanced technologies for international social change and the greater good.”

Bnai Brith International praises his “myriad accomplishments.”

“The history of the State of Israel cannot be written without including Peres and his myriad accomplishments during a nearly 70-year career in public service,” Bnai Brith International says in a statement.
