Amata Law Office Suites has been a long time supporter of the SWC as they combat a growing antisemitism movement around the globe. We continue our support as the SWC celebrates 45 years as a leading international Jewish human rights institution.

Simon Wiesenthal Center - The Spirit of Courage Benefit

Simon Wiesenthal Center

The Simon Wiesenthal Center, a Jewish global human rights organization, will be hosting its Spirit of Courage Benefit in Chicago on June 26, 2022, where we will be honoring dynamic ambassadors for peace and the Mobile Museum of Tolerance (MMOT).

Register to attend here: www.wiesenthal.com/SpiritofCourage2022

This year’s Spirit of Courage awardees are Karen and Sandy Teplitzky, recognizing their overwhelming support of the Mobile Museum of Tolerance. 

The MMOT inspires people of all ages and backgrounds, empowering them to raise their voices and combat anti-Semitism, bullying, racism, hate and intolerance and to promote human dignity. 

In addition, His Excellency Dr. Shaikh Khalid bin Khalifa Al Khalifa and Her Excellency Miss Betsy Bennet Mathieson, the Chairman and Deputy Chair of the King Hamad Global Centre for Peaceful Coexistence in Bahrain, will accept Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Global Peace and Tolerance Award. In 2017, the Kingdom of Bahrain signed the Bahrain Declaration on Religious Tolerance alongside Rabbis Hier and Cooper from the Simon Wiesenthal Center. This Declaration led to the creation of the King Hamad Global Centre for Peaceful Coexistence, and was a precursor to the Abraham Accords. The Global Centre recently entered into Memorandums of Understanding with Israel and the University of Haifa to promote coexistence between Arabs and Jews in the Middle East.

We will also bestow the SWC Humanitarian Award on Dr. Albert Bourla, the CEO of Pfizer; a Community Service Award to ABC7 Chicago; and the Medal of Valor to Juliana Taimoorazy, a Nobel Peace Prize nominee and President of the Iraqi Christian Relief Council.

Attendees of the Benefit will be able to experience the SWC’s Mobile Museum of Tolerance which is the first-of-its-kind in the United States.
