The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) announced the hiring of Israeli former Ambassador Marina Rosenberg as the leader of its international affairs program. 

“I have devoted much of my life to combating antisemitism and anti-Israel bias in countries around the world – and as a part of ADL, I am excited to take on this new challenge of working on these issues globally,” Rosenberg said in a statement released Monday. “I greatly admire and respect ADL’s commitment to fighting antisemitism and hate-fueled violence, and I’m looking forward to expanding this work in the years to come.”

Rosenberg was most recently Israel’s ambassador to Chile. In her 16 year career in the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs she also served as Director of the Gulf Department, Counselor for Foreign Affairs in the Embassy of Israel in Germany, Head of Mission in the UAE Office and Acting Deputy Director for UN Specialized Agencies.

“We are thrilled Marina Rosenberg is joining our team as we grow ADL’s international footprint and fight antisemitism around the world,” said Jonathan Greenblatt, ADL CEO and National Director. “Marina’s deep expertise in working to counter antisemitism, her experience in promoting social impact initiatives and her global contacts will be tremendous assets to help move this work forward.”
