Print Email

The White House is expected to formally announce today the appointment of Hannah Rosenthal, the 58-year-old former head of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs and a member of J Street’s advisory council, as the State Department’s special envoy to monitor and combat anti-Semitism, an ambassador-at-large position that falls under State’s human-rights portfolio. The position, which was established in 2004, has remained vacant since January, when its first and only holder, Gregg Rickman, who directed the Senate investigation on Holocaust assets and was also a former legislative affairs staffer at the Republican Jewish Coalition, retired with the Bush Administration.
