When Anti-Defamation League National Director Abraham H. Foxman announced his retirement, for July 2015, Israeli President Shimon Peres sent a moving letter of appreciation and thanks.

The President’s office on Wednesday released a scanned copy of the letter from two weeks ago to The Algemeiner.

Peres wrote to “express” his “deep appreciation for your 50-year service to the Jewish cause and your 27-year unwavering fight against anti-Semitism” as ADL’s national director.

“Armed with the conviction of your moral compass, you have been tireless in your efforts to fight the scourge of anti-Semitism, lamenting its rise in today’s world, alongside any form of discrimination driven by hatred, using your powerful and influential voice to protect the safety of the Jewish people in the face of initiatives that threaten their well-being.”

“We in Israel value your leadership and dedicated commitment to our security and the cause of peace, and your unshakable engagement in shaping a safe, peaceful and promising tomorrow for Jewish life.”
