The Biden administration’s antisemitism envoy Deborah Lipstadt will depart tomorrow for her second foreign trip to Argentina and Chile, the US State Department announces.

“During her visits, Ambassador Lipstadt will engage with local Jewish communities, government officials, and civil society representatives on actionable strategies and opportunities to counter antisemitism, which is fundamental to advancing human rights,” the US readout says.

In Argentina, Lipstadt will participate in events commemorating the anniversary of Buenos Aires’s AMIA Jewish community center bombing in 1994, which killed 85 and injured hundreds.

Last week, Lipstadt returned from her first foreign trip during which she made stops in Saudi Arabia, Israel and the UAE for meetings with government officials and civil society leaders.
