Dr Bharat Barai was presented the award ‘for standing against antisemitism’ at the ‘Campus Championship Gala’ of StandWithUS. “We stand with you, our Jewish brothers and sisters,” said Dr Bharat Barai, an ardent advocate of the India-Israel relationship. Dr Barai has made six trips to Israel, said, “Hindus all over the world, along with most of the civilized world have condemned these brutal barbarian Hamas, affirming their solidarity with the Jewish people, and supporting the right of Israel to defend itself and demolish the demand of mass.”
Peggy Shapiro Director of Special Projects “Stand With US” admired Dr Barai for his relentless support of the Jewish communities and the relationship between India, the US and Israel.
Born in Mumbai, Dr Barai is a distinguished physician, a respected leader of the Hindu American community, and an outspoken Zionist who helped pave road for closer ties between Israel and India as well as between the Hindu and Jewish American communities.
“Dr Barai has been very active in promoting India, US, and Israel relations,” StandWithUS said. In his leadership role in the Indian-American community, Dr Barai has made it a priority to establish and strengthen ties to the Jewish and Pro-Israel community, it said.
Barai was instrumental in StandWithUs’s outreach. He made it possible for StandWithUs to host events such as “Ancient Cultures-Modern Miracles,” a community celebration of 65 years of India and Israel’s independence, a Hindu-Jewish Festival of Lights Celebrating Chanukah and Diwali, and dozens of programs, including a memorial for Daniel Pearl, underscoring the commonalities between the two communities, it said.
