47 Years On The Jewish Front Lines: A Gratifying Life
In this farewell piece as American Jewish Committee CEO, David reflects on what led him to begin work at AJC in 1979, and he reflects on key lessons learned over the past 47 years, 43 of them at AJC, as a professional in the Jewish world. "My biggest takeaway from 47 years of global Jewish advocacy is to delete the word 'impossible' from the vocabulary. Time and again, the impossible has become possible. Despite the unrelenting threats, the Jewish people are better off, more free and more secure in 2022 than in 1975. And the main reason is that Jews have determined we will no longer allow ourselves to be either victims or bystanders of history, but rather seek to become participants, indeed authors, of history."
