Ten months after Robert Kraft, philanthropic owner of the New England Patriots football team, won the $1 million Genesis Prize and announced that he would use the prize money to establish a new organization to fight anti-Semitism, Rachel Fish was recently named the first executive director of his Foundation to Combat Ant-Semitism. The Jewish Week interviewed her by email. This is an edited transcript.
“I am thrilled to have Rachel lead this new and important effort,” Kraft said. “Rachel’s education, experience, and most importantly, her commitment make her the right person for this role. She is equipped to face the growing epidemic of anti-Semitism with tenacity and a proven track record of progress through a lifetime of work in this arena. Our family is honored and privileged to have Rachel lead this new foundation, which is so close to our hearts.”
