Abraham H. Foxman is a world-renowned leader in the fi ght against anti-Semitism, bigotry and discrimination; a passionate supporter of the State of Israel; and a voice for peace in the Middle East. Foxman is national director emeritus of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). He retired from the ADL in 2015, having served 50 years with the organization, including serving as national director from 1987 through July 2015.

Born in Poland in 1940, Foxman was saved from the Holocaust by his Polish Catholic nursemaid who baptized and raised him as a Catholic during the war years. His parents survived the war, but 14 members of his family were lost.

He arrived in America in 1950 with his parents. A graduate of the Yeshiva of Flatbush, Brooklyn, N.Y., he has a bachelor’s degree in political science from City University of New York, and a juris doctorate from New York University School of Law.
