United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said that the U.N. shares common goals with American Jewry in pursuit of “peace and human dignity for all” at the 50th anniversary tribute gala of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations on Tuesday in New York.

Ban praised American Jews for their efforts in fighting injustice and extremism.

“My position is unequivocal: anti-Semitism has no place in the 21st century… Too much is at stake to allow such discrimination to persist,” he said. “Our doors are open to American Jewish organizations across the spectrum of our work.”
