Sheri Zvi is ADL’s new Florida regional director – Sun Sentinel

Posted By on August 5, 2017

On July 17, Sheri Zvi became the new Florida regional director of the Anti-Defamation League.

Zvi succeeds Hava Holzhauer, who was the ADL Florida regional director since 2013.

According to officials from the organization, Zvi was selected as Florida regional director because of her past experience in Florida as an ardent voice against bigotry and passion for human dignity as the Southeast Regional Director of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum since 2014.

Prior to being with the USHMM, Zvi was South Palm Beach County director of American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) from 2008-14.

"We are excited that Sheri will be leading ADL's efforts to combat anti-Semitism and bigotry of all forms in the Florida region," said Tracey Grossman, Anti-Defamation League Florida regional board chair.

"She has been a steadfast advocate in the Jewish community of Florida and we are looking forward to her leadership at ADL."

Zvi and her family personally witnessed the work of the Anti-Defamation League recently, prior to her appointment with the organization.

"I experienced their work in a very personal way several months ago when my children's school experienced multiple bomb threats in under two weeks," said Zvi.

"The ADL was there uniting people, working with local authorities, speaking with students and parents."

Zvi is proud of joining the Anti-Defamation League and looks forward to her role with the organization.

"As the grandchild of Holocaust survivors, it has been my goal to help move society to a place where anti-Semitism and bigotry become things of the past."

"The Anti-Defamation League works to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and secure justice and fair treatment to all."

"I feel like I can make a difference, stand up for what is right and encourage others to do the same. I am thrilled to be working with an exceptionally talented team of professionals and dedicated leaders in the community," said Zvi.
