"Never Again" Has Become Again and Again:
Rise of Antisemitisim and What Must Be Done
Rabbi Abraham Cooper
President and CEO, Center for Security Policy
For four decades, Rabbi Cooper has overseen the Wiesenthal Center's international social action agenda which includes addressing worldwide anti-Semitism, monitoring the rise of extremist groups and Nazi crimes, promoting Interfaith Relations, thwarting the anti-Israel Divestment campaign, and promoting worldwide tolerance education. He is widely recognized as a pioneer and international authority on issues related to digital hate and the Internet. Considered one of the world's most influential Rabbis, he regularly meets with world leaders, including Pope Francis, presidents and foreign ministers to defend the rights of the Jewish people, combat terrorism and promote interfaith relations. Rabbi Cooper will address strategies and the role the U.S. Congress can play in what Pope Francis recently described as "resurgent, barbaric anti-semitism."
