B’nai B’rith International will meet with dozens of world leaders during the course of the week, on the sidelines of the opening of the 72nd United Nations General Assembly. B’nai B’rith President Gary P. Saltzman and Executive Vice President and CEO Daniel S. Mariaschin, along with other key B’nai B’rith leaders and staff, will discuss Iran’s backing of terrorist organizations, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and the rise in global anti-Semitism, among other issues, in these meetings.
Israel often faces singularly unfair treatment at the U.N.—at which B’nai B’rith has been present since the body's founding.
Engaging with world leaders is imperative to combating the anti-Israel animus that has become pervasive at the world body. B'nai B'rith is committed to holding the U.N. accountable to its essential founding values and aspirations.
