NEW YORK – Welcoming the appointment of retired Brig. Gen. Michael Herzog as Israel’s next ambassador to the United States, World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder said:  

“I heartily congratulate Michael Herzog on his appointment as Israel’s next ambassador to the United States and look forward to partnering with him on issues of critical importance to the Jewish community, both in the United States and around the globe.”

“Mike Herzog has had an exemplary career in government leadership, serving in senior roles for various Israeli ministers of defense, and advancing the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. I met with him at length over dinner several years ago and found him to be extremely knowledgeable not only about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and how to resolve it, but also about the challenges confronting the American Jewish community. He truly understands Diaspora Jewry both intellectually and intuitively, and will be a critically important ally in strengthening the historical ties between Israel and both the U.S. government and American Jewry. I am certain that he will play an important role in ensuring Israel’s security and that he will be a steadfast ally in combating the deeply troubling worldwide phenomenon of resurgent antisemitism, including in the United States.”
