Address by WJC President Ronald S. Lauder at WJC Herzl award ceremony 2023
“We are not alone. We are not alone,” he declared to the audience.
At the event, Amb. Lauder awarded WJC’s top honor, the Theodor Herzl Award, to The Right Honourable Brian Mulroney, for being an outspoken opponent of antisemitism, a tireless supporter of Israel and a devoted friend of the Jewish people.
“His fight against antisemitism is a most articulate and enduring passion,” Amb. Lauder said, adding, “None of us could imagine that Israel would be attacked not by just by Hamas but by the rest of world. It makes our friends that much more important.”
