CEO of ADL, Speaks at Rodeph Sholom!
On October 30th, Rodeph Sholom was proud to welcome Chief Executive Officer at the Anti-Defamation League, Jonathan Greenblatt, back to the synagogue where he celebrated his Bar Mitzvah.
Jonathan focused on his book, “It Could Happen Here: Why America is Tipping from Hate to the Unthinkable – And How We Can Stop It.”
Jonathan’s first book is a bracing primer on how we—as individuals, and organizations, and as a society—can strike back against antisemitism and hate.
Information on sponsorships will be forthcoming. This in-person only event will be free and on a first-come, first-served basis with Rodeph Sholom congregants getting priority.
Jonathan joined ADL, the world’s leading anti-hate organization with a distinguished record of fighting antisemitism and advocating for just and fair treatment to all, in 2015 after serving in the White House as special assistant to President Obama and Director of the Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation.
He joined the government after a distinguished career in business as a successful social entrepreneur and corporate executive: he co-founded Ethos Brands, the company that launched Ethos Water (acquired by Starbucks, 2005), founded All for Good (acquired by Points of Light, 2011), and served as a senior executive at realtor.com (acquired by News Corp, 2014).
