David Inlander discussed how to address the challenges of a fractured world at the AJC Seattle Advocacy in Action dinner in Seattle, Washington on September 24.
As part of his remarks to nearly 300 attendees, David explained the importance of creating a global community based upon mutual understanding, respect and unity between all people while honoring pluralism and democratic values. He praised the AJC’s historical achievements and shared insights on the group’s commitment to addressing today’s current cultural challenges.
David is the immediate past chair of the AJC Interreligious Affairs Commission, which seeks to improve understanding between faiths worldwide. During the past six years, he has led AJC representatives in the United States and abroad in talks with key religious leaders. David is currently the Chair of AJC’s national nominating committee. Both his law practice at Fischel Kahn and his work with the AJC are guided by Tikkun Olam, a Jewish concept that translates to “repairing the world.”
