A Shabbat With IAC for Action Director, Mr. Joseph Sabag
Joseph Sabag is the Executive National Director at IAC for Action. In 2015, Joe led the passage of the country’s first anti-BDS law regulating against commercial boycotts of Israel in South Carolina.
Since then, similar laws have passed in an additional 27 states, including an executive order here in Maryland. Collectively, these laws have placed trillions of dollars of state funds out of reach of the BDS movement, and have therefore been referred to as “Israel’s Economic Iron Dome.”
Joe has been a sought after consultant for numerous lawmakers at the state and federal levels over the past decade and has been extensively published in national media outlets and the international press.
