ADL met with the new Consul General of Switzerland Jean-François Lichtenstern on December 17 in Los Angeles. Joining Regional Director Amanda Susskind at the meeting was ADL International Affairs Committee co-chair Mary Weissmann.

The group discussed the work being done by ADL in reaching out to the large consular corps in Los Angeles to create awareness about anti-Semitism and discrimination both domestically and abroad, as well as the work of ADL’s International Affairs Committee.

The Consul General expressed an interest in partnering with ADL on programs to combat anti-Semitism and bigotry of all kinds.
