Israeli Deputy Knesset Speaker, MK Moshe Feiglin and Manhigut Yehudit - the Jewish Leadership Movement - are proud to announce that United States Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) will be joining us as we celebrate our 11th Annual Dinner and the modern State of Israel's 66th birthday in New York on May 5th.
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, known for her steadfast support of Israel, is one of the two featured speakers. She ran for President of the United States in 2012 and may run again in 2016. Congresswoman Bachmann is known for her strong support of Israel - she recently stated that "Judea and Samaria is the biblical, historical and cultural heartland of the Jewish People." Rep. Bachmann continued, "The Jewish citizens of Judea and Samaria are there to stay. They are not leaving and they won't be pushed from their homes - nor should they ever be."
MK Moshe Feiglin, who was recently labeled by former Knesset Speaker Avram Burg as "the most important and interesting man in Israeli politics today" will be the evening's other featured speaker. He encourages American Jews to be active participants in his straightforward program to transform the State of Israel from "a state of Jews" into "The Jewish State". Manhigut Yehudit, the largest faction inside Israel's ruling Likud party, and Mr. Feiglin are building alternative leadership for Israel - leadership based on Jewish concepts and values instead of on secular or globalist values.
In his 14 months in office, MK Feiglin has clearly shown himself to be the strongest supporter of the Land of Israel in the Knesset. In multiple Knesset votes he was the only coalition member to vote to end the disastrous Oslo Process, to oppose the terrorist releases, and to oppose giving away the Negev to the Bedouin. He has also developed a reputation as a maverick with many of his non-Oslo positions, and has won a tremendous following across the entire spectrum of Israeli society with his independent views.
The event will be held at Terrace on the Park, located at 52-11 111th St., Flushing Meadows Park (Queens), NY 11368, on May 5th at 6:00 PM. (For directions to the event, visit the following link:http://terraceonthepark.com/contact/ and then click on "Map & Directions".)
Manhigut Yehudit is honoring several of its outstanding supporters. The guest of honor will beDr. Shlomo Kalish of Israel. Dr. Kalish is the CEO of Jerusalem Global Ventures and a former IAF fighter pilot. Joining him as honorees will be: Sanford and Rosalie Goldstein of Fort Lee, NJ - Lifetime Jewish Activism Award, Sol Margolis of Potomac, MD - Jerusalem of Gold Award, Brian and Debbie Glick of Modi'in, Israel and formerly of New York -Aliyah Award, and Al and Lynne Dublanko of British Columbia, Canada - Lover of Israel Award. The entire evening will be dedicated to the memory of Jacob Heller, who passed away just one year ago.
After the Annual Dinner, Manhigut Yehudit will proudly welcome the acclaimed singer Yehuda Green and his band as they perform a one-hour set to celebrate Israel's Independence Day!
