The American Jewish Committee (AJC) Philadelphia/South Jersey chapter presented its 2017 Community Leadership Award to S.A. Ibrahim at an April 25 tribute dinner at the Hilton Philadelphia at Penn’s Landing. Ibrahim, one of the founding members of AJC’s national Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council, was recognized for his lifelong commitment to building bridges and promoting interfaith dialogue and understanding. He recently retired as CEO of Radian Group.

More than 150 people attended the event, which included a keynote speech by Robert Silverman, AJC’s U.S. director of Muslim-Jewish relations.
