RESCHEDULED FOR MONDAY, DECEMBER 17
The date and location are set, and we are now hard at work developing the program for the AZM December 17th Biennial Assembly and dinner. The meeting and business sessions will be at UJA-Federation, 130 East 59th Street. Registration will open at 1:30 PM and the program will begin at 2:00 PM. Immediately following the meetings, around 5:30 PM, we will move directly across the street to The Lighthouse Conference Center for a festive dinner, including musical entertainment, honoring our outgoing president, Bill Hess.
The cost of full registration remains at $180, which includes: the meeting, the festive dinner, and a name listing in the journal honoring Bill (a $75 value). The meeting-only price is $36; the dinner-only price is $125. Tickets already purchased for the dinner, will of course, be honored.
The program will review many of the major issues facing the Jewish people and the Zionist movement today, including a diplomatic briefing, a preview to the forthcoming Israeli elections, an interactive look at some of the faces of Zionism today, modern day anti-Semitism and its relationship to BDS We will conclude with an response from the WZO as to how today’s Zionist movement is addressing these issues. Of course, we will also have a business session, including the election of our new officers.
We urge each of you to plan to join us for the entire day. It is a way of showing your solidarity with Israel and her people still reeling from the recent onslaught of rockets in the south. It is also a unique opportunity to get information to use in your home communities to help defend and build the Jewish state. Lastly, you will be inspired by the relevance of the renewed and growing Zionist Movement through the World Zionist Organization.
