Read my latest opinion editorial, "Young professionals standing for Israel in D.C." in Washington Jewish Week.
A B’nai B’rith leadership delegation met privately at United Nations headquarters in New York with Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who assumed office only three weeks ago.
The delegation members conveyed to the secretary-general B'nai B'rith's best wishes and readiness to partner closely on the advancement of the U.N.'s founding principles. They discussed a variety of priority concerns, particularly a long history of hostile and inequitable treatment for Israel at the world body, Middle East peacemaking, Iranian involvement in illicit nuclear activity and terrorism and the scourge of global anti-Semitism.
The group, led by B’nai B’rith International President Gary P. Saltzman and CEO Daniel S. Mariaschin, also included Senior Vice President Sheila Mostyn, B’nai B’rith International Center for Human Rights and Public Policy Chairman Charles Kaufman, Council on U.N. Affairs Chairman Michael Nachman, Director of U.N. and Intercommunal Affairs David Michaels and B’nai B’rith young leader Jason Langsner. B'nai B'rith also included several representatives of other major Jewish communal institutions in the meeting.
Invited to a fireside chat with Gary Briggs, vice president and Chief Marketing Officer of Facebook, speaking at Georgetown University.
Great to be back on the Hilltop! Hoya Saxa!!
Continuing my contributor posts on U.S.-Israel Affairs in Newsmax, I published my latest op-ed piece today on an AP report. Read, "In Perplexing Move, US Approves Natural Uranium for Iran."
Interviewed on the local CBS News station, WUSA9, about Hanukkah and Christmas overlapping.
Following the passing of UN Resolution 2334, I asked the question "Have Israel's UN Roots Become Weeds?" in my Newsmax contributor column on U.S.-Israel Affairs.
Following a presentation on Jewish diaspora and identity at a conference hosted by the American Hellenic Institute Foundation, I share my thoughts on "Giving Thanks on #GivingTuesday" in The Times of Israel.
In my previous column for Newsmax I hypothesized how Israel-Americans may tip the scales in Florida. So I followed up on that idea in my latest U.S.-Israel affairs column, "Florida's Jewish Vote Critical on Election Day."
The U.S. Presidential Election is two months out and after reading a number of articles in Israeli media, I began to ask myself how and if "Israeli-Americans Could Tip Florida This November."
I have been invited to be a contributor to Newsmax on U.S.-Israel Affairs. Read my first column, "Where's the Uproar Over the Iran Payments?"
Looking forward to share my thoughts on Israel with a new readership base.
I am a marketing and communications professional living in Washington, DC.
