VP Biden to WJC Leaders: Jews Must "Speak Out Every Time Anti-Semitism Raises its Ugly Head" Featured

Biden met with World Jewish Congress Leaders in Washington

WASHINGTON, The leadership of the World Jewish Congress (WJC) met in Washington, D.C. for its annual Executive Committee meeting to discuss the growing threats to Jewish communities and the surge in anti-Semitism.

At a special reception tonight, Vice President Joe Biden commended World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder for his and the WJC’s tireless efforts to combat anti-Semitism in Europe and worldwide.

Commenting on the rise of world anti-Semitism, Biden said: “I spent a lot of time in Austria, Munich, and France talking about anti-Semitism in Europe and other places around the world and let me tell you that your work really matters. If you don't constantly speak out every time it raises its ugly head -- if you let it sit for a minute -- it's like a boil that festers. I want to thank you all for your constant, unrelenting oversight and for making sure that wherever it rears its head, you speak.”
