Friends of Israel Sun Lakes Jewish Congregation

Michael Cohen

The Sun Lakes Jewish Congregation Friends of Israel Organization will be sponsoring a presentation on October 25 at 3:00 p.m. in the Sun Lakes Chapel Center. There is no cost to attend this presentation and anyone in the area is welcome to attend. Light refreshments will be served and there will be no solicitation of funds.

The program will include a short video presentation followed by a guest speaker. The video will be from “The Case for Israel: Democracy’s Outpost” which presents a vigorous case for Israel – for its basic right to exist, to protect its citizens from terrorism and to defend its borders from hostile enemies. It features Alan Dershowitz, Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, who has achieved international distinction as one of Israel’s most prominent and articulate advocates.

The guest speaker, Meir Jolovitz, will discuss the video presentation and answer questions from the audience. Mr. Jolovitz is the former National Director of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA). He was born in Israel and has a Master’s Degree in International Relations and Political Theory. His father survived 13 death camps.

In previous presentations he has offered – “The Iran nuclear treaty is worthless because Iran openly intends on violating the agreement.”

“There is a misunderstanding about the Middle East. It is not war over territory; it is about the existence of Israel.”

“The United Nations’ treatment of Israel is unfair. The U.N. is home to 57 Muslim countries where there is no rule of law and they are joined by an equal number of nations who have never known democracy and they stand in judgment of Israel.”

Again, the entire community is welcome to attend what should be an informative and interesting program on Sunday, October 25, at 3:00 p.m. in the Sun Lakes Chapel Center located at 9240 N. Sun Lakes Boulevard, 85248 in Sun Lakes Country Club.
