Michael Salberg- Boycotts, Divestments and Sanctions- Forum

by JCPA Plenum

Michael SalbergSince July 2006, Michael Salberg has been Associate National Director and Director of International Affairs of the Anti-Defamation League. Michael served as ADL’s General Counsel from the time he joined ADL in 2003 until July 2006. In addition to his duties as General Counsel, Michael also served as Deputy Chief Operating Officer until December 2005 and then as Special Assistant to the National Director.

Prior to joining ADL, Michael practiced law for more than 28 years and was a partner in the New York City law firm Graubard Miller. He was deeply involved in the work of ADL for many years as a volunteer. He received his J.D. in 1976 from New York Law School and a B.A. in 1973 from the University of Cincinnati.

In August 2001, Michael represented ADL at the World Conference Against Racism in Durban, South Africa, where he experienced firsthand the overwhelming indifference of the international community to what has, once again in our history, become the all too familiar demonization of Israel and the Jewish people throughout many parts of the world. Since joining the staff, Michael has represented ADL at numerous international conferences on anti-Semitism and has participated in the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs Global Forum to Combat Anti-Semitism. Last month he attended the London Conference on Combating Anti-Semitism which brought together 125 parliamentarians from more than 40 countries and a group of more than 50 Jewish organizational professionals from around the world to address the need for greater attention to the alarming increase in anti-Semitism worldwide.

Michael is deeply committed to strengthening ADL’s role as a global advocate for Israel and as a leader in the protection of Jewish communities around the world in the fight against anti-Semitism and hate. He also leads ADL’s initiatives with the Latino/Hispanic community here in the U.S.
