BRONFMAN--Edgar. The Anti-Defamation League mourns the loss of Edgar Bronfman, a long-time friend of the League and Honorary National Vice Chair. Edgar was for many years Chair of our Liquor Industry Division, Chair of our New York Appeal and one of our most significant benefactors. We remember with pride that we honored Edgar for his leadership here in New York and on the national level. He was the moving force behind the settlement with Swiss banks for restitution for Holocaust survivors. His decades of strong advocacy on behalf of the Jewish community here at home and around the globe earned him a place in the pantheon of outstanding Jewish leaders. He will be fondly remembered for his leadership, his integrity and his abiding commitment to the Jewish people. Barry Curtiss-Lusher, National Chair Abraham H. Foxman, National Director
