Hordes, Shinbaum leaving ADL


Two veteran senior staffers for the Anti-Defamation League are retiring.

Jess Hordes, the director of the Jewish civil rights group’s Washington office, and Myrna Shinbaum, the organization’s top spokeswoman, both announced their retirement last week.

Hordes started working with the ADL in 1974 as a consultant to several Jewish groups on the Arab League boycott of Israel. He joined full-time in 1982 and has been director of the Washington office since 1989.

Stacy Burdett, the associate director of government and national affairs, will succeed Hordes, who will continue consulting with the ADL.

Shinbaum, who has been with the ADL for more than 20 years, will be succeeded by her deputy, Todd Gutnick.
