Letter from AFSI Americans for a Safe Israel to RCRF Rachel's Children 24th Dinner, Sunday October 21, 2018
AFSI honors Evelyn Haies for her tireless efforts for Rachel Imeinu and for putting together such a fabulous program.
This year's theme is REAL HISTORY
It is very sad that as this is being written, Students at New York University (NYU) plan to promote a resolution supportive of the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel.
Many millennials are being taught lies about Israel rather than Biblical and Historical Truth. CAIR, SJP, MSA and JVP are working hard to spread LIES and Propaganda.
Therefore we would like to wish Mazal Tov to the RCRF Honorees and their presenters who through their hard work and continuous efforts hold on tight to our Promised Land,the Land of our Heritage. Both in the Diaspora and in Israel, we know that the Land was Promised to the Nation of Israel, the Seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, a Land whose borders are delineated clearly in the Bible!
We want the Millennials to learn from the Honorees and their presenters.
We are grateful to Flatbush Girl, Adina Miles Sash, and Josh Wander who came in from Israel and others who are running this program LIVE on social media. It is our hope that this event will reach a far greater audience than simply those attending this dinner... We hope it will also reach youth who are thirsty for Truth about Israel and/or those who don't have an opinion. As these students continue further with their education they will soon encounter peers that have been fed lies and untruths. Our youth are Israel's Ambassadors of the future.
From this event they will see that expression of Biblical and Historical Truths are multifaceted. REAL HISTORY is in all aspects of our lives, at all ages - in our plants, our art and our education.
Rabbi Ron Yitzchok Eisenman is a direct descendant of the pioneers settling Eretz Yisroel in the 1800s. His ancestors are Yoel Moshe Salomon (1838-1913) and Moshe Salomon (1925-1948). Speaking of Rabbi Eisenman's ancestry's settlement in Israel in the 1800's and 1900's is testament of the fake news of Israel's "illegal occupation".
Dr. Jon Greenberg is A Biblical Botanist, devoted to the science of plants and nature in Eretz Yisroel. His work is our answer to the kite and balloon terror coming from Gaza raising havoc and senseless destruction especially on the vegetation in Southern Israel. These terror attacks are attributed to the Palestinian fake news as per their "Right of Return".
Cindy Grosz is a multi talented, political savvy spokeswoman and defender of Israel! Cindy is constantly educating, she holds a media presence on Arutz7, Times of Israel, Zev Brenner, WOR, John Batcheldor, Gotham News to name a few...She is well connected politically. Cindy uses every kind of media and medium and forum to put Israel in a positive light. She exposes fake news, those who defame Israel using Education or Politics as a cover of antisemitism and hate. Cindy is PR for Israel at its best, as she strives to reach a broad and across the spectrum audience.
Yaeli Vogel is a renowned artist, and has recurrent themes that feature the Land of Israel and the Jewish People. Her paintings are REAL! Her love for Eretz Yisroel and the Jewish people shines through, and absorbed by all who observe them. Her beautiful and voluminous artwork is posted online and can be viewed on her website.
Dr. Joseph Klausner ob"m, was a superior historian of REAL HISTORY who lived in Eretz Yisroel in Efrat, very close proximity to Rachel's Tomb and lectured in Beit Rachel of RCRF.
Assemblyman Dov Hikind who introduces Cindy has introduced legislation with G-d's help to enforce oversight and truthfulness in the educational curriculum of millennials to take out the Fake News.
Josh Wander added to the program at a later date coming from Israel as per Cindy's request, is a G-d sent addition to this event. Extremely accomplished in his own right, a former Commander in the IDF, married with 6 kids bli ayin hara, living on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, he has taken over the advocacy of his good friend Ari Fuld hy"d, a PR Ambassador for Israel. Ari ob'm connected especially well with youth and adults alike. Ari Fuld hy'd was murdered in cold blood, knifed in the back by a 17 Year old Palestinian kid raised in an environment that glorified Jihad
May this Dinner be a tremendous success on all fronts as we connect to our Mother Rachel. It is our hope that each and every one of us, listening to the speakers, will be inspired to share Biblical and Historical Truth, REAL HISTORY with all those we encounter be it at work, school and with members of our own families
May we go from Strength to Strength!
ושבו בנים לגבולם!
