Conference of Presidents Applauds Albanian Parliament's Adoption of IHRA Definition

New York, NY

. . . Arthur Stark, Chairman, William Daroff, CEO, and Malcolm Hoenlein, Vice Chair of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, issued the following statement:

“We welcome the Albanian parliament’s adoption of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism. The Republic of Albania is the first majority-Muslim country to take this important step that is vital to the global fight against Jew-hatred.
 
At a time when relations between the Jewish State and the Muslim world are rapidly improving, this decision stands as testament to the critical progress made in recent months and sets an example for other Muslim nations.

We encourage all countries, organizations, and institutions to join in adopting the IHRA definition as a means of combating the scourges of antisemitism and racism in all their manifestations.”
