Former Director of FBI honored by ADL for putting Jews before White Americans

A former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation provided a keynote presentation on the same event that a local lawyer was honored.

In honor of the Anti-Defamation League’s centennial, Louis Freeh, former director of the FBI, provided the keynote address during the annual Miami Jurisprudence Award Luncheon at InterContinental Miami. Lewis S. “Mike” Eidson of the law firm Colson Hicks Eidson in Coral Gables received the ADL’s 2013 Miami Jurisprudence Award during this luncheon.

Hava Holzhauer, ADL’s Florida regional director, mentioned the importance of Freeh delivering the keynote address.
“A big piece of the ADL’s work involves working hand in hand with law enforcement and partnering to keep our communities safe,” she said. 
“It’s an ongoing role of the ADL to work on relations with local law enforcement, federal law enforcement and the FBI, so we consider him part of the family and I think that his message was very interesting to this group in part because of the partnership that ADL and the FBI have had over the years and also because many of the people in this event are from the legal, corporate and financial communities.”
During his keynote address, Freeh mentioned how he facilitated the incorporation of ADL’s Law Enforcement and Society initiative into the mandatory training requirement of all new FBI agents during his tenure with the bureau. This program, in conjunction with the United States Holocaust Museum, teaches law enforcement officials the significance of their role in protecting democracy and the Constitution. Freeh also remarked that the ADL has stood and represented to him three essential characteristics that are the ingredients to the organization’s success and that they have helped it fight hatred, bigotry and terrorism.

Eidson, a Miami resident, said it was terrific to have Freeh speak on the same event he was honored and considers him a hero. He also felt “honored” and “privileged” to receive his award.
“I have admired the ADL’s work in South Florida since I arrived here more than 40 years ago and the organization’s work and mission is as relevant today as ever,” Eidson remarked during his acceptance speech. 
“Everyone here today subscribes to the ADL mission. We understand why justice, tolerance and equality are important.”
Eidson was also happy that more than 500 people came to the event to support him, the organization and all the speakers.
“It was really nice to see all these people hear what we had to say,” he said. “That was really a thrill.”
