Legislators from ten countries — including Guatemala, Uruguay, Chile, Colombia, Brazil, and the Dominican Republic among others — gathered in Miami, Florida, last Sunday for the Latin America Summit on Israel, where the focus of discussion was the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) Working Definition of Antisemitism.
The forum was hosted by the Israel Allies Foundation (IAF) and the Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM).

“Jews and Christians working together to promote support for Israel and Judeo-Christian values can make a real impact across the globe,” Búcaro said. “Our presence is a representation of solidarity, support, and peace for the State of Israel.”
At the end of the summit, the participants signed a joint resolution calling for the study, adoption, and implementation of the IHRA Working Definition of Antisemitism.
