For more than 40 years, David Harris has assumed a front-row seat when it comes to Jewish and pro-Israel advocacy. As the Chief Executive Officer of American Jewish Committee (AJC) — a position he held from 1990-2022 — he was honored more than 20 times by foreign governments for his international diplomacy work, making him arguably the most decorated Jewish organizational leader in U.S. history. Under Harris’ tenure, AJC established strong relations with governments in Europe, South America, Asia and Africa, and even explored relations with the Arab world years before the Abraham Accords.

Currently, Harris is the anchor of the “Defending Israel” show on the Jewish Broadcasting Service, for which he serves as a strategic analyst.

Please join American Society of the University of Haifa (ASUH) in welcoming David Harris, a man whom the late Shimon Peres once called the “foreign minister of the Jewish people.” This program is part of a three-part series in partnership with the acclaimed national law firm Saul Ewing, with future guests in the series including Ambassador Dennis Ross, former U.S. envoy to the Middle East, on March 27; and Abraham Foxman, former National Director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), on April 10.

The discussion will be moderated by Jeffrey Robbins, ASUH Board Member and partner at Saul Ewing.
