Three former ambassadors actively lobby in Brazil to scuttle appointment of Dani Dayan as Israel's next ambassador; group of ex-ambassadors meet with Abbas in Paris.
When Stern addressed the audience, he said "freedom of expression in Israel - like in the US - is under attack."
Hundreds gathered on Monday night at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City – where Westheimer is a board member – to celebrate her 90th birthday.
Brazilian senator and prominent Evangelical leader Marcelo Crivella adds that "Dani Dayan is a prepared diplomat selected legitimately by a friendly country."
The meeting came five days after Dayan said in an interview that after three months waiting for the Brazilians to agree to the appointment , it was time to take a more aggressive stance.

Dayan, who lives in Samaria, is a former head of the Council of Jewish Communities in Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip.
Government sources say no talk in PMO about replacing Dayan as envoy to Brazil.
Dayan leaves Likud- a party he says is too firm in its opposition to a Palestinian state- to join Bennett.
