The Anti-Defamation League named Aaron Levinson as interim director of its regional office in Los Angeles. The post became vacant when David Lehrer, who had served as director for 27 years, was fired last month by Abraham Foxman, ADL’s national director in New York. Lehrer’s dismissal was met with shock and anger by Jewish community leaders in Los Angeles. Levinson has worked for the ADL since 1996, and has served as head of the region’s San Fernando Valley office.
