Over 300 people participated in the launch of AJC Boston’s Global Voices Initiative featuring AJC Executive Director David Harris this past Thursday at Congregation Mishkan Tefila in Chestnut Hill, MA. Harris spoke about the Iranian nuclear threat, Israel’s pursuit of peace and security, and the struggle for regional stability in the Middle East.

“The issue of the Iranian bomb is not only a Jewish or Israeli issue,” said Harris. “The Iranian bomb would be a global game changer.”

AJC Boston director Rob Leikind emphasized AJC’s credibility on the world stage and its ability to effectively combat global challenges today. “AJC has truly global reach,” said Leikind. “With offices around the world from Brussels to Jerusalem and Mumbai to Boston, AJC is a global voice for a global era.”

AJC Boston will continue to host world leaders and opinion makers as part of its new Global Voices Initiative series. For more information about the Global Voices Initiative, please visit http://www.ajcboston.org.
