Message from Naveh Yogev, P2G Director
Afula- Gilboa- Southern New England
In the past 24 hours we are experiencing an escalation in violence in Israel, from Jerusalem and throughout the country. Our partnerships have been instrumental in responding pro-actively to the situation – each according the their specific regional needs.
We would like to invite you, and whomever you think could benefit, to a special briefing with Ambassador Dr. Michael Oren, allowing an opportunity to understand what is happening beyond the headlines.
In Israel, Ambassador Oren served as an officer in the Israel Defense Forces, in the paratroopers in the Lebanon War, a liaison with the U.S. Sixth Fleet during the Gulf War, and an IDF spokesman during the Second Lebanon War and the Gaza operation in January 2009. He acted as an emissary to Jewish refuseniks in the Soviet Union, as an advisor to Israel's delegation to the United Nations, and as the government's director of Inter-Religious Affairs. He was a gold medal-winning athlete in the Maccabiah Games.
Briefing will take place today, at 1:00pm EST, using this link:
