Combating antisemitism has been in the news of late, but it is a cause Robert Kraft has been dedicated to for years.
For his efforts, the New England Patriots chairman and CEO was honored with the National Leadership Award by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in New York City on Tuesday.
“We see that we are, right now, in a real moment in our country speaking about antisemitism,” Kraft said in his acceptance speech. “We need to keep the conversation going.”
Kraft was presented the award at the “What You Do Matters” 2022 Northeast Tribute Dinner. An initial gift from the Kraft family helped build the Museum, and the ceremony that honored him kicked off its 30th anniversary commemoration.
