Israeli Consul General Yaron Sideman spoke at The Zionist Organization of America – Greater Philadelphia District’s quarterly meeting Temple Adath Israel in Merion, PA. During his talk, he held up a toy. It was a plush terrorist doll (complete with rock to throw) that the Palestinian Authority wants their young children to play with. He contrasted this to a plush dreidel that Jewish children use.

Steve Feldman and the local ZOA leadership discussed fighting media bias, helping to inform elected officials and politicians, monitoring school curriculum, reaching out to the uninformed and other needs. As pro-Israel advocates, we should be motivated to actively address these problems.

Mort Klein and Yaron Seidman both took questions after they spoke.
