Concluding Remarks of AJC Chair of Interreligious Affairs Bobi Baruch at Presentation of Human Dignity Award to Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew

Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, we have honored Your All-Holiness with AJC’s Human Dignity Award, but it is the Patriarch who has honored us by elevating Orthodox-Jewish relations. The Patriarch’s warm relationships with AJC and the Jewish people, characterized by mutual respect and esteem, are palpable here today.

Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, may God continue to bless Your All-Holiness’s leadership, may this visit to the U.S. continue to inspire, and may the Patriarch be given the strength to lead the faithful and model leadership for us all for many years to come. Thank you all, and have a good day.
