Please join the Red Bank Chapter of Hadassah and Congregation B’nai Israel in Rumson for a virtual lecture, with Senior Vice President of Policy for the Anti -Defamation League (ADL), Eileen Hershenov, to be held via Zoom on Monday, June 14 at 7:30 pm.

Eileen joined ADL in 2018 after serving as General Counsel (GC) for several of the nation’s leading mission-driven not-for-profits. Directly prior to coming to the ADL, she served as GC and head of public policy for the Wikimedia Foundation, which operates Wikipedia, the fifth-most visited internet site. Prior to that, she was GC at Consumer Reports and before that, GC at the Open Society Foundations. Eileen began her legal career clerking for a NY federal district court judge, worked for the ACLU, and then spent three years at the law firm Morrison & Foerster, where among other things, she litigated cases supporting racial justice and the rights of immigrants, the LGBTQ+ community and women. 

Eileen began her professional career as a campus and community organizer in New York State, working on environmental issues, transit reform, student and worker rights, and ultimately leading a successful access-to-justice legislative campaign. Eileen earned a BA from Yale College and a JD from Yale Law School.
