Dean Schramm, Regional President of AJC Los Angeles, delivered an impassioned speech on combating anti-Semitism at home and abroad and standing up against the delegitimization of Israel on American university campuses: “Anti-Zionism has become a legitimate form of political discourse; this must stop. This we must fight against. I am a Zionist and I say so proudly.”
The leadership of AJC Los Angeles elected new officers and board members for the 2014-15 year. Reeve Chudd, an AJC LA Board Member who has served as chair of the Development Committee, was elected as one of the Los Angeles Region’s Vice Presidents.
