The ADL is hosting an entertainment industry awards dinner on Oct. 11 at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles, with Meghan Markle acting as their main speaker, it was announced Tuesday.

On a personal level, ADL’s mission is particularly special to me as it honors my grandparents’ legacy and Jewish heritage,” he said. “I am humbled to be recognized by this esteemed organization and to be in such great company as ADL’s previous honorees.”
