About Our Guest Speaker: Adela Cojab

Adela Cojab Moadeb is a Jewish activist, NYU alumna, and JD candidate at Yeshiva University’s Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.

In 2019, Cojab filed a Title VI Complaint against NYU for failing to protect Jewish students from harassment. Cojab’s case resulted in a resolution agreement openly addressing antisemitism as a form of discrimination under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, laying the groundwork for subsequent antisemitism lawsuits against universities. In December 2019, former President Trump honored Cojab and later signed the Executive Order Against Antisemitism.

Her work, from political advocacy to interfaith peace rallies, has been recognized internationally, earning her designations as one of Hadassah’s 18 Zionist American Women of 2024, American Sephardic Federation Broome and Allen Fellow, Jewish Week 36 Under 36, JNS Top 40 Latin American Pro-Israel Advocates and Leaders, Top 50 Pro-Israel Influencers of 2021, and a PROPEL Woman 30 Under 30.

Cojab served as the official representative of Jewish Students at the United Nations 2017-2019 and is an antisemitism correspondent for Univision and Telemundo. Adela cohosts the interfaith podcast “Americanish: Daughters of Diaspora” and, as of 2024, hosts the OpenDor Media show, “TodayUnpacked” on YouTube. 

Cojab is, proudly, a Syrian-Lebanese Jew born in Mexico City, Mexico, and raised in Deal, New Jersey.
