The Jewish Diplomatic Corps of the World Jewish Congress (WJC JDCorps) is the diplomatic flagship program of the WJC, and a worldwide network of Jewish professionals acting in the fields of diplomacy and public policy on behalf of world Jewry. At present, we have a cadre of over 300 members aged 27 to 45 from 50 countries, who are already accomplished professionals in their own rights. Members, known as Jewish Diplomats (JDs), include lawyers, community leaders, social media experts, venture capitalists, university professors, marketing specialists and entrepreneurs. Our objective is to represent and strengthen the Jewish communities worldwide, where our members are also taking up leadership roles. WJC Jewish Diplomatic Corps activities focus on advocacy on WJC core topics, such as interfaith relations, combating the delegitimisation of Israel, antisemitism and Holocaust legacy, as well as safeguarding human rights and minority rights.
Having a name, a flag, a status, grants Hezbollah a hollow charisma which all terrorists crave. But their intent and their abilities to maim, terrorise, kill and destroy remain undiminished. And that is what all countries which value the gifts of life and liberty need to oppose. By calling themselves the “Party of God” they have besmirched all men of faith and of none. Because Hezbollah is not a Party of God. It is a party which has turned its back on Him. And the international community must do everything it can to curtail its heinous activities.
Today, Lemkin’s legacy as a human rights lawyer is, thankfully, being revived. His legacy as a proud, defiant and stubborn Jew also deserves recognition. Our community should take great pride in what Lemkin accomplished in his short life, knowing that his strong Jewish roots and identity contributed immensely to the development of human rights in the last 70 years.
“All-in-all, the conference itself and the diplomatic meetings became a new and pivotal milestone […] hopefully leading to an improvement of the status of Israel and Jews all around the world,” writes WJC Jewish Diplomat Elizaveta Goglacheva.
“We strongly felt that anti-Semitism is not solely a Jewish issue. Jews are the proverbial canaries in the mine who alert society to dangerous triggers to hatred of other minorities in society. It is not solely the responsibility of Jewish communities to fight anti-Semitism.”
