Marc H. Tanenbaum



Passionate advocate and international peacemaker

“Like the Maccabees of old, if small groups of people of conscience, in this country and in other parts of the world, will remain steadfast in their commitments to the ‘Law of Human Rights’ – and will mobilize to press our government and every government to enforce the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights—we may yet find a way to help turn the world away from its present course of barbarism and anarchy to the achievement of a human society illuminated by reverence for human life and for human conscience.”

Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum, 1978
