US President Barack Obama offered his congratulations Thursday night to While House aide Jonathan Greenblatt, who was chosen to succeed Abraham Foxman as the Anti-Defamation League's next national-director.

Obama lauded Greenblatt as a "valued member" of his administration's team and extended his support for the ADL, praising it for more than a century as "a strong moral voice against anti-Semitism and hatred in all forms.""I am confident that Jonathan will build on Abe’s extraordinary legacy, ensuring that the Anti-Defamation League remains at the forefront of efforts to achieve greater justice, freedom, and equality for people in the United States and across the globe," Obama said in a statement.
