|WJC to honour former US Ambassador to UN, Nikki Haley|
World Jewish Congress (WJC) President Ronald S. Lauder will honour former United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, on 6 November with the WJC’s annual Theodor Herzl Award.
The prestigious Award recognises outstanding individuals who work to promote Herzl’s ideals for a safer, more tolerant world for the Jewish people.
Joel Grey, the legendary actor, singer, director, and photographer, will be presented with the WJC’s fourth Teddy Kollek Award for the Advancement of Jewish Culture.
Of Haley’s nomination, Lauder said: “Throughout her tenure, US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, proved to be a giant in this realm [of championing tolerance], exemplifying [the USA’s] unwavering friendship for Israel and commitment to world Jewry, relentlessly calling out the biases and double standards that pervade in the United Nations and its bodies and demanding action.
“As Ambassador Haley proclaimed in her first days in the position, a new day has dawned indeed at the UN. Thanks to Ambassador Haley, and her allies, the international community is waking up.”Please login or register to see the full article
