Danny Danon, the Israeli Ambassador to the UN is set to host the "Building Bridges, Not Boycotts" anti-BDS conference in the United Nations on May 31.

The conference is a partnership between Israel’s Mission to the UN, the World Jewish Congress, Keren HaYesod, the American Center for Law and Justice, the Anti-Defamation League,  the Zionist Organization of America, Israel Bonds, StandWithUs, B'nai B'rith International, Hillel, CAMERA as well as other organizations.

Israeli Supreme Court Justice Elyakim Rubinstein and President of the World Jewish Congress Ronald Lauder are among those set to address the general assembly. There will be a special performance by singer-songwriter Matisyahu, a hero to the anti-BDS movement.

“BDS is continuing to spread and seeks to utilize international institutions to implement its ideology of hate,” stated Ambassador Danon, adding that “this summit will create practical tools to battle BDS by training students to serve as ‘ambassadors’ against boycotts."
