B’nai B’rith International President Gary P. Saltzman and CEO Daniel S. Mariaschin have issued the following statement:
The General Assembly of B'nai B'rith France elected Philippe Meyer as president of B'nai B'rith France. Meyer formerly served as vice president. He succeeds Serge Dahan, who is now president of B’nai B’rith Europe.
In the current context of threats and worries surrounding the French Jewish community and the French society, B'nai B'rith France – with about 60 Lodges – has a major role to play, through its history, values and messages. Meyer notes: “Our commitment to the political and societal struggles against the enemies of the Jewish community and the enemies of Israel will be the priority of our action, alongside the natural axes of B'nai B'rith which are culture, memory and solidarity. To carry out these fights, our solidarity and commitment with B’nai B’rith Europe and B’nai B’rith International will be total in the fraternity and the respect of our common values.”
We congratulate Philippe and look forward to working together.
