The National Jewish Assembly extends its support to Rabbi Leo Dee on his appointment as Special Envoy for Social Initiatives by Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen.
Rabbi Leo Dee has shown remarkable strength and resilience in the face of a tragic loss, as his wife Lucy and daughters Maia and Rina were tragically taken from him by a Palestinian terrorist earlier this year. Despite this unimaginable hardship, Rabbi Dee’s willingness to work to the benefit of the State of Israel demonstrates his dedication to making a positive impact in the world.
Foreign Minister Eli Cohen’s decision to appoint Rabbi Dee is a testament to the rabbi’s compassionate heart, exceptional personality, and ability to connect with diverse communities, government officials, and the media.
Rabbi Dee’s acknowledgment of Israel’s role in defending its citizens and the free world against terror is a reminder of the ongoing global battle against evil ideologies.
The NJA reiterates its support for Rabbi Leo Dee as he embarks on this important mission and applauds the Israeli Foreign Ministry’s decision to appoint him as Special Envoy for Social Initiatives. The NJA believes that his contributions will greatly strengthen Israel’s commitment to social justice and human rights.
