Hadassah National President Rhoda Smolow

In her October 8, 2020 op-ed for Israel Hayom, Hadassah National President Rhoda Smolow urges the US government to write a definition of antisemitism into law using the working definition created by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) in 2016.

Smolow notes that governments that have taken this distinctive step to codify the working definition demonstrate determination in combating this evolving societal scourge.
