Front Cover
KTAV Publishing House, Inc., 2000 - Religion - 582 pages
Harris, executive director of the American Jewish Committee since 1990, shares 20 years of experience with the AJC, including working to help Soviet Jewry and his views on the Middle East, other parts of the world, the Holocaust, human rights, international terrorism, making a better America, and the future of American Jewry. His words on anti-Semitism, unsolved bombings in Argentina, and interfaith relations still resonate. Annotation copyrighted by Book News Inc., Portland, OR
