Young Israel Praises Selection of Elan Carr as Anti-Semitism Envoy

February 5, 2019

The National Council of Young Israel (NCYI) today praised the Trump administration’s selection of Elan Carr as the U.S. State Department’s Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism.
“As the grandson of Holocaust survivors, a military veteran who fought terrorism, and an attorney who prosecuted gang-related crimes, Elan Carr brings a wealth of experience and a keen understanding of how to combat hate to this critical position,” said NCYI President Farley Weiss. “Having met Elan Carr and being familiar with his unwavering commitment to combatting anti-Semitism in the United States and around the world, I have no doubt that he is the right person for this important job and look forward to working together with him in his new role.”
“With anti-Semitism on the rise, it is essential that the United States continues to actively and aggressively take steps to tackle hate-mongering and bigotry,” added Weiss. “We are therefore grateful to President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for selecting a new Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism and filling this vital position with an individual who is stalwart in his dedication to eradicating anti-Semitism.”
