Wendy Kahn

National director, South African Jewish Board of Deputies

Wendy Kahn, the first woman to become national director of the South African Jewish Board of Deputies, is outspoken against the boycott, divestment, and sanctions campaign and other anti-Israel groups, both in her home country and around the world. “We need to show them [boycott activists] up for what they are,” Kahn told the Jerusalem Post, adding, “They are using a rhetoric that wants little more than to destroy the Jewish state and has shown little in finding a lasting and sustainable solution to the tragic conflict in the Middle East. We have to expose their antisemitism. We need to expose their intimidation, which for us is anti-South African.” (Photo: Courtesy)
