B’nai B’rith International Latin American Affairs Director Eduardo Kohn, Ph.D., is a featured panelist at the Shared Heritage, Values and Visions conference in San Antonio on Sunday, March 27. The conference, co-sponsored by B’nai B’rith, is designed to promote Latino-Jewish dialogue on issues of mutual concern such as immigration, the situation in the Middle East, and foreign policy. B’nai B’rith International Senior Vice President Bruce Pascal is a moderator of a panel focused on community organizing and foreign policy.
Kohn will explain Latin America’s new role regarding Israel-Palestinian relations and how it has evolved, including the recent recognition by nine South American nations of a Palestinian state. He will also examine Iranian infiltration of the region through partners such as Venezuela, and how that has created a new context for anti-Semitism. Kohn will press for Jewish communities to understand these challenges and dangers and work together in unity with the ongoing goal of indispensable continuity for Israel and the Jewish people.
